    Koláčková, Martina; Moulick, Amitava; Klejdus, Bořivoj; Húska, Dalibor (Mendel University in Brno, 2017-12-31)
    The impact of zinc selenide nanoparticles (ZnSe-NPs) on plants is still unknown. The intention of this work was to compare phytotoxicity of ZnSe-NPs and selenium and zinc ions in 100, 250 and 500 M concentrations. Young ...
  • Effect of zinc-selenium nanoparticles on microalgae scenedesmus quadricauda 

    Strejčková, Aneta; Koláčková, Martina; Vaněčková, Tereza; Býtešníková, Zuzana; Moulick, Amitava; Rankić, Ivan; Klejdus, Bořivoj; Húska, Dalibor (Mendel University in Brno, 2017-12-31)
    The increasing industrial use of nanomaterials in recent years poses a potential risk to the environment. The first organisms that come into contact with these substances include aquatic organisms, and therefore this study ...
  • Improving cytocompatibility of CdTe quantum dots by Schiff-base-coordinated lanthanides surface doping 

    Buchtelová, Hana; Strmiska, Vladislav; Škubalová, Zuzana; Dostálová, Simona; Michálek, Petr; Křížková, Soňa; Hynek, David; Kalina, Lukáš; Richtera, Lukáš; Moulick, Amitava; Adam, Vojtěch; Heger, Zbyněk (BioMed Central, 2018-04-19)
    Background: Suitable fluorophores are the core of fluorescence imaging. Among the most exciting, yet controversial, labels are quantum dots (QDs) with their unique optical and chemical properties, but also considerable ...
  • Induction of Laccase, Lignin Peroxidase and Manganese Peroxidase Activities in White-Rot Fungi Using Copper Complexes 

    Vršanská, Martina; Voběrková, Stanislava; Langer, Vratislav; Palovčíková, Dagmar; Moulick, Amitava; Adam, Vojtěch; Kopel, Pavel (MDPI, 2016-11-01)
    Ligninolytic enzymes, such as laccase, lignin peroxidase and manganese peroxidase, are biotechnologically-important enzymes. The ability of five white-rot fungal strains Daedaleopsis confragosa, Fomes fomentarius, Trametes ...
  • Nanoparticles Suitable for BCAA Isolation Can Serve for Use in Magnetic Lipoplex-Based Delivery System for L, I, V, or R-rich Antimicrobial Peptides 

    Veselý, Radek; Jelínková, Pavlína; Hegerová, Dagmar; Cernei, Natalia Vladimirovna; Kopel, Pavel; Moulick, Amitava; Richtera, Lukáš; Heger, Zbyněk; Adam, Vojtěch; Zítka, Ondřej (MDPI, 2016-04-01)
    This paper investigates the synthesis of paramagnetic nanoparticles, which are able to bind branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)—leucine, valine, and isoleucine and, thus, serve as a tool for their isolation. Further, by ...
  • Novel Vancomycin-Peptide Conjugate as Potent Antibacterial Agent against Vancomycin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus 

    Jelínková, Pavlína; Šplíchal, Zbyněk; Jimenez Jimenez, Ana Maria; Haddad, Yazan Abdulmajeed Eyadh; Mazumdar, Aninda; Sur, Vishma Pratap; Milosavljević, Vedran; Kopel, Pavel; Buchtelová, Hana; Guráň, Roman; Zítka, Ondřej; Richtera, Lukáš; Hegerová, Dagmar; Heger, Zbyněk; Moulick, Amitava; Adam, Vojtěch (Dove Press, 2018-11-01)
    Background: Increase in vancomycin (Van)-resistant bacterial strains including vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA) and lack of new effective antibiotics have become a formidable health problem. Materials and ...
  • Platinum nanoparticles induce damage to DNA and inhibit DNA replication
