Bioinformatics strategies for taxonomy independent binning and visualization of sequences in shotgun metagenomics
One of main steps in a study of microbial communities is resolving their composition, diversity and function. In the past, these issues were mostly addressed by the use of amplicon sequencing of a target gene because of ...
Free-Living Enterobacterium Pragia fontium 24613: Complete Genome Sequence and Metabolic Profiling
(SAGE Publishing, 2017-03-30)
Pragia fontium is one of the few species that belongs to the group of atypical hydrogen sulfide-producing enterobacteria. Unlike other members of this closely related group, P. fontium is not associated with any known host ...
Fast Time-Varying Linear Filters for Suppression of Baseline Drift in Electrocardiographic Signals
(Springer Nature, BioMed Central, 2017-02-07)
Realization of the high-pass (HP) filter is based on a narrow-band low-pass (LP) filter of which output is subtracted from the delayed input. The base of an LP filter is an extremely low computational cost Lynn’s filter ...
Draft Genome Sequence of Clostridium pasteurianum NRRL B-598, a Potential Butanol or Hydrogen Producer
We present a draft genome sequence of Clostridium pasteurianum NRRL B-598. This strain ferments saccharides by two-stage acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation, is oxygen tolerant, and has high hydrogen yields.
Characterization of Microbiota Composition and Presence of Selected Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Carriage Water of Ornamental Fish
(Public Library of Science, 2014-08-01)
International trade with ornamental fish is gradually recognized as an important source of a wide range of different antibiotic resistant bacteria. In this study we therefore characterized the prevalence of selected ...
The effect of Benzothiazolone-2 on the expression of Metallothionein-3 in modulating Alzheimer's disease
(Wiley Periodicals, 2017-08-15)
Metallothioneins (MTs) are a class of ubiquitously occurring low-molecular-weight cysteine- and metal-rich proteins containing sulfur-based metal clusters. MT-3 exhibits neuro-inhibitory activity. The possibility to enhance ...
Complete genome sequence of Pragia fontium 24613, an environmental bacterium from the family Enterobacteriaceae
The complete genome sequence of Pragia fontium 24613 was determined using PacBio RSII, Roche 454 and SOLiD sequencing. A total of 3,579 genes were predicted, including 3,338 protein-coding sequences and 146 pseudogenes. ...
Content of phenolic compounds and antioxidant capacity in fruits of selected genotypes of apricot with resistance against Plum pox virus
Research on natural compounds is increasingly focused on their effects on human health. In this study, we were interested in the evaluation of nutritional value expressed as content of total phenolic compounds and antioxidant ...
Effect of five different stages of ripening on chemical compounds in medlar (Mespilus germanica L.)
Study of changes of nutritional value of fruit during the process of ripening can help to estimate the optimal date for fruit harvesting to achieve the best quality for direct consumption and further utilization. The aim ...
Mathematical evaluation of the amino acid and polyphenol content and antioxidant activities of fruits from different apricot cultivars
Functional foods are of interest because of their significant effects on human health, which can be connected with the presence of some biologically important compounds. In this study, we carried out complex analysis of ...
