AIM Conformational analysis of fluorescent styryl dyes FM 1-43 and FM 4-64 was undertaken to clarify if distinct activity-dependent labelling of single lactotrophs vesicles and plasma membrane by two dyes is associated with their structural differences. METHODS The activity-dependent labelling of single vesicles and plasma membrane by FM 1-43 and FM 4-64(More)
High initial Mn(II) concentration results in accumulation of a Mn(III) tartrate complex in the growth medium of Phanerochaete chrysosporium. Since Mn(III) is the major oxidant in ligninolysis by manganese peroxidase, the role of accumulated complex should not be neglected when degradation experiments by a crude culture filtrate are performed. To study the(More)
Bacterial resistance to the available antibiotic agents underlines an urgent need for the discovery of novel antibacterial agents. Members of the bacterial Mur ligase family MurC-MurF involved in the intracellular stages of the bacterial peptidoglycan biosynthesis have recently emerged as a collection of attractive targets for novel antibacterial drug(More)
The biosynthetic pathway of the bacterial peptidoglycan, where MurD is an enzyme involved at the intracellular stage of its construction, represents a collection of highly selective macromolecular targets for novel antibacterial drug design. In this study as part of our investigation of the MurD bacterial target two recently discovered classes of the MurD(More)
Using a combination of genomic and post-genomic approaches is rapidly altering the number of identified human influx carriers. A transmembrane protein bilitranslocase (TCDB 2.A.65) has long attracted attention because of its function as an organic anion carrier. It has also been identified as a potential membrane transporter for cellular uptake of several(More)

We present how Slovenian text-to-speech synthesis technologies have been used to develop a prototype solution of a novel e-Health service ZEN, which will focus on the elderly user group, along with blind and visually impaired users. The service features two communication channels for delivering information to the users: via telephone and via a TV screen,(More)
A pigment from the edible mushroom Xerocomus badius norbadione A, which is a natural derivative of pulvinic acid, was found to possess antioxidant properties. Since the pulvinic acid represents a novel antioxidant scaffold, several other derivatives were recently synthetized and evaluated experimentally, along with some structurally related coumarine(More)
A classical protein sequence alignment and homology modeling strategy were used for building three Mycobacterium tuberculosis-DNA gyrase protein models using the available topoII-DNA-6FQ crystal structure complexes originating from different organisms. The recently determined M. tuberculosis-DNA gyrase apoprotein structures and topoII-DNA-6FQ complexes were(More)
Designing XML Schemas for dictionary projects: the case of emerging typologically varied dictionaries The article deals with dilemmas that have arisen in the designing of XML Schemas of typologically varied dictionary databases of the Fran Ramovš Institute of the Slovene language (Dictionary of Slovene Synonyms, Dictionary of the Literary Slovene Language(More)
The cell wall of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) consists of peptidoglycan, arabinogalactan and mycolic acids. The cytoplasmic steps in the peptidoglycan biosynthetic pathway, catalyzed by the Mur (A-F) enzymes, involve the synthesis of UDP-n-acetylmuramyl pentapeptide, a key precursor molecule required for the formation of the peptidoglycan monomeric(More)
