  • The evaluation of magnetic polymethacrylate-based microspheres used for solid phase DNA micro-extraction 

    Trachtová, Štěpánka; Zapletalová, Hana; Španová, Alena; Horák, Daniel; Kolářová, Hana; Rittich, Bohuslav (MDPI, 2015-04-02)
    Using magnetic particles as a solid-phase extraction system is the most frequently used micro-technique for DNA isolation. Particles with a complete covering of magnetic cores by a polymer are hence preferred. Quantitative ...
  • Application of vacuum solid-phase microextraction for the analysis of semi-hard cheese volatiles 

    Sýkora, Michal; Vítová, Eva; Jeleń, Henryk (Springer, 2020-01-09)
    Solid-phase microxtraction (SPME) is a well-established technique in the analysis of food volatile compounds, usually performed for qualitative analysis
  • Fusarium Mycotoxins Stability during the Malting and Brewing Processes 

    Piacentini, Karim Cristina; Běláková, Sylvie; Benešová, Karolína; Pernica, Marek; Savi, Geovana; Rocha, Liliana; Hartman, Ivo; Čáslavský, Josef; Corra, Benedito (MDPI, 2019-05-07)
    Mycotoxins are widely studied by many research groups in all aspects, but the stability of these compounds needs further research for clarification. The objective of this study is to evaluate deoxynivalenol and zearalenone ...
  • Study of Metabolic Adaptation of Red Yeasts to Waste Animal Fat Substrate 

    Szotkowski, Martin; Byrtusová, Dana; Němcová, Andrea; Vysoká, Marie; Rapta, Marek; Shapaval, Volha; Márová, Ivana (MDPI, 2019-11-19)
    Carotenogenic yeasts are non-conventional oleaginous microorganisms capable to utilize various waste substrates. In this work 4 red yeast strains (Rhodotorula, Cystofilobasidium and Sporobolomyces sp.) were cultivated in ...
  • Drug Release Kinetics of Electrospun PHB Meshes 

    Kundrát, Vojtěch; Černeková, Nicole; Kovalčík, Adriána; Enev, Vojtěch; Márová, Ivana (MDPI, 2019-06-14)
    Microbial poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) has several advantages including its biocompatibility and ability to degrade in vivo and in vitro without toxic substances. This paper investigates the feasibility of electrospun PHB ...
  • Optimization of Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Waste Bread before Fermentation 

    Hudečková, Helena; Šupinová, Petra; Babák, Libor (Mendel University Press, 2017-02-28)
    Finding of optimal hydrolysis conditions is important for increasing the yield of saccharides. The higher yield of saccharides is usable for increase of the following fermentation effectivity. In this study optimal conditions ...
  • The Effect of Soybean-Derived Phytoestrogens on Concentrations of Plasma Isoflavones, 15-keto-13,14-dihydroprostaglandin F2alfa and Progesterone in Dairy Cows 

    Watzková, Jarmila; Křížová, Ludmila (University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Brno, 2010-09-19)
    The objective of the study was to determine the effect of soybean-derived phytoestrogens and their metabolites on the activity of sex hormones during the oestrous cycle in multiparous lactating dairy cows. The experiment ...
  • Use of Lignocellulosic Materials for PHA Production 

    Obruča, Stanislav; Benešová, Pavla; Márová, Ivana (Croatian Society Of Chemical Engineers, 2015-07-27)
    Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are very promising materials that might serve as an environmentally friendly alternative to petrochemical plastics. The main obstacle preventing PHAs from entering the market massively is the ...
  • Accumulation of Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) Helps Bacterial Cells to Survive Freezing 

    Obruča, Stanislav; Sedláček, Petr; Mravec, Filip; Kučera, Dan; Benešová, Pavla; Márová, Ivana (PLoS, 2016-06-17)
    Accumulation of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) seems to be a common metabolic strategy adopted by many bacteria to cope with cold environments. This work aimed at evaluating and understanding the cryoprotective effect of PHB. ...
