Immunohistological identification/localization of immunomodulating neuropeptides [vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) and substance P (SP)] and enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS) as well as histomorphometric analyses of kinetics of their release and development of respective nerve fibers density during postnatal ontogenesis of porcine intestinal mucosal(More)
A reference Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (STR) haplotype database is needed for Y-STR match interpretation as well as for national and regional characterization of populations. The aim of this study was to create a comprehensive Y-STR haplotype database of the Croatian contemporary population and to analyze substructure between the five Croatian(More)
The sequence of development of porcine systemic and local humoral and cellular immunity was analyzed by the age-dependent patterns of total serum immunoglobulin (Ig) levels, responsiveness of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) to common mitogens (phytohemagglutinin, PHA; concanavalin A, ConA; poke-weed mitogen, PWM), or allogeneic PBL in a mixed lymphocyte(More)
AIM To analyze 8 X-linked short tandem repeat (STR) markers in the population of central Croatia and to evaluate their forensic efficiency. METHODS We carried out a statistical analysis of the data from previously performed genetic analyses, collected during routine forensic work by the Forensic Science Centre ''Ivan Vučetić.'' Mentype® Argus X-8 PCR(More)
Limbal stem cells play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of the corneal surface in a healthy condition or after injury through corneal renewal and repair. In pathologic conditions these cells could be replenished with cultivated allogenic limbal cells. In this investigation, limbal stem cells from small fragments of donor tissue were cultivated in(More)
AIM To investigate the impact of synthetic electrospun polyurethane (PU) and polycaprolactone (PCL) nanoscaffolds, before and after hydrolytic surface modification, on viability and differentiation of cultured human eye epithelial cells, in comparison with natural scaffolds: fibrin and human amniotic membrane. METHODS Human placenta was taken at elective(More)
Proper detection and subsequent analysis of biological evidence is crucial for crime scene reconstruction. The number of different criminal acts is increasing rapidly. Therefore, forensic geneticists are constantly on the battlefield, trying hard to find solutions how to solve them. One of the essential defensive lines in the fight against the invasion of(More)
BACKGROUND Because European-wide directives are restricting the non-clinical use of antibiotics as in-feed growth promotors in swine production, there is an intensive search for alternative strategies for control and prevention of losses among young pigs. With the growing knowledge of the porcine immune system and its endogenous modulation, it has been(More)
The metabolic properties of quadriceps femoris muscle of Lika pramenka sheep breed, fed with a supplement from button mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus). ABSTRACT The objective of this study was to verify the presence of oxidative enzymes in the quadriceps femoris muscle of Lika Pramenka sheep and to evaluate the effect of supplement from button mushrooms,(More)
SUMMARY – Th e purpose of this study was to create a fi brin-based human skin substitute in vitro with epidermal and dermal component and to assess its healing potential in deep partial and full thickness burns. Fibrin scaff olds were prepared from commercial fi brin glue kits. Human fi broblasts were cultured in fi brin gel. Human keratinocytes were seeded(More)
