Effect of Magnetic Nanoparticles on Tobacco BY-2 Cell Suspension Culture
Nanomaterials are structures whose exceptionality is based on their large surface, which is closely connected with reactivity and modification possibilities. Due to these properties nanomaterials are used in textile industry ...
Complexes of silver(I) ions and silver phosphate nanoparticles with hyaluronic acid and/or chitosan as promising antimicrobial agents for vascular grafts
Polymers are currently widely used to replace a variety of natural materials with respect to their favourable physical and chemical properties, and due to their economic advantage. One of the most important branches of ...
Apoferritin-mediated doxorubicin internalization through transferrin receptor 1
(Mendel University in Brno, 2017-12-31)
This work is aimed at the possibilities of targeted drug delivery into the tumour tissue. This approach can greatly reduce the otherwise serious side effects of conventional treatment - systemic toxicity. For this purpose, ...
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 ...
Evaluation of Antioxidant Activity, Polyphenolic Compounds, Amino Acids and Mineral Elements of Representative Genotypes of Lonicera edulis
The aim of this study was to evaluate the bioactive substances in 19 berry cultivars of edible honeysuckle (Lonicera edulis). A statistical evaluation was used to determine the relationship between the content of selected ...
Tissue perfusion modelling in optical coherence tomography
(BioMed Central, 2017-02-08)
Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a well established imaging technique with different applications in preclinical research and clinical practice. The main potential for its application lies in the possibility ...
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.
ECG features and methods for automatic classification of ventricular premature and ischemic heartbeats: A comprehensive experimental study
Accurate detection of cardiac pathological events is an important part of electrocardiogram (ECG) evaluation and subsequent correct treatment of the patient. The paper introduces the results of a complex study, where various ...
