SUMMARY Anuran tissues, and especially skin, are a rich source of bioactive peptides and their precursors. We here present a manually curated database of antimicrobial and other defense peptides with a total of 2571 entries, most of them in the precursor form with demarcated signal peptide (SP), acidic proregion(s) and bioactive moiety(s) corresponding to(More)
Disulfide bonds (SS bonds) are important post-translational modifications of proteins. They stabilize a three-dimensional (3D) structure (structural SS bonds) and also have the catalytic or regulatory functions (redox-active SS bonds). Although SS bonds are present in all groups of organisms, no comparative analyses of their frequency in proteins from(More)
Anuran skin is known to be a rich source of antimicrobial peptides although their therapeutic potential is often limited due to their toxicity against mammalian cells. The analysis of structure-activity relationships among anuran antimicrobial peptides provided the parameters to construct the "Mutator" tool for improving their selectivity for bacterial(More)
The aim of this work is to show the highlights of electrophysiological diagnostics, i.e. its potentials in level diagnostics of traumatic disfunction of brachial plexus (BP). In that manner we have analyzed the results of electrophysiological research, made on 53 patients with different levels and grades of traumatic lesion of brachial plexus. We have also(More)
