Full-text available
Diabetes is among the most prevalent diseases of the modern world and is strongly linked to an increased risk of numerous neurodegenerative disorders, although the exact pathophysiological mechanisms are not clear yet. Insulin resistance is a serious pathological condition, connecting type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and obesity. Recently, insu...

The accumulation of oxidative damage to DNA and other biomolecules plays an important role in the etiology of aging and age-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D), atherosclerosis, and neurodegenerative disorders. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is especially sensitive to oxidative stress. Mitochondrial dysfunction resulting from the acc...
Article
Full-text available
Obesity and accompanying type 2 diabetes are among major and increasing worldwide problems that occur fundamentally due to excessive energy intake during its expenditure. Endotherms continuously consume a certain amount of energy to maintain core body temperature via thermogenic processes, mainly in brown adipose tissue and skeletal muscle. Skeleta...
Article
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells found in many different tissues in the adult human and animal body and are thought to be important for replacing damaged and dead cells during life. Due to their differentiation abilities, they have significant potential for regeneration and consequently therapeutic potential in various medical conditions...
Article
Early life stress can adversely influence brain development and reprogram brain function and consequently behavior in adult life. Adequate maternal care in early childhood is therefore particularly important for the normal brain development, and adverse early life experiences can lead to altered emotional, behavioral and neuroendocrine stress respo...

Conference Paper
V okviru projekta LIFE Stop CyanoBloom smo razvili avtonomno plovilo za zaznavanje in nadzor razraščanja cianobakterij, ki ga napaja sončna energija. Plovilo lahko samodejno pluje po točkah, ki jih določi uporabnik v računalniškem programu. S pomočjo posebej razvitega mehanskega sistema za odvzem vodnega vzorca iz spremenljive globine omogoča popis...

Cyanobacterial blooms in fresh water bodies have a serious negative impact on human, animal and environmental health. The impact of electro-oxidation of water containing Planktothrix rubescens in electrolytic cell equipped with diamond electrodes has been tested. The treatment had an immediate effect on cyanobacterial phycocyanin and chlorophyll fl...

Full-text available
Due to extensive use of pharmaceuticals in health care, veterinary medicine and in livestock breeding, represent their remains and potentially active metabolites in wastewater an increasing environmental problem. Biological treatment plants, which are most often used for municipal wastewater treatment, are in many cases ineffective in removal of re...

Article
Full-text available
Lignocellulosic substrates are widely available but not easily applied in biogas production due to their poor anaerobic degradation. The effect of bioaugmentation by anaerobic hydrolytic bacteria on biogas production was determined by the biochemical methane potential assay. Microbial biomass from full scale upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor...
Article
Full-text available
A successful biogas production process depends upon adequate hydrolysis of macromolecules in the substrate and stable further conversion. The complex and rigid structure of cellulosic, hemicellulosic and lignin chain is preventing lignocellulosic biomass to reach efficient hydrolysis, therefore pretreatment of a substrate is needed for higher bioga...
Article
Full-text available
Successful biogas production is based on stable or adaptable microbial community structure and activity which depends on type of substrate used and several physico-chemical conditions in the bioreactor. Monitoring those and the dynamics of microbiota is important for planning and optimizing the biogas process, avoiding critical points and reaching...
