Maintenance of a colony of up 50000 Tororo strain of Glossina pallidipes female
Program: IAEA
Project leader: RNDr. Takáč Peter CSc.
Annotation: The main idea of the project is to build up a backup colony of tsetse flies Glossina pallidipes, which will serve to provide the mass rearing operations of tsetse flies in STEP in Kaliti, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. These operations will produce large quantities of sterile male tsetse flies, which will be gradually released in the areas of tsetse occurrence, to eradicate them. Method of sterile male application (Sterile Insect Technique-SIT) has been successfully applied to a number of insect pests and is safer, cheaper and more effective than the use of harmful insecticides. SIT is particularly unique in that, the only environmentaly safe method, and when is used consistently, eradicates harmful insects at the exactly limited area.

Genetic structure and differentiation among populations of Barbatula barbatula and Cobitis elongatoides: implication for Danube river system biogeography
Program: Bilateral – other
Project leader: Mgr. Kohoutová Šedivá Alena PhD.
Annotation: The distribution and genetic population structure of most species were greatly affected by the climatic cycles during Pleistocene glaciations. Populations surviving ice ages in southern or central Europe served as sources for reinvasion during the interglacial times. Few studies investigated the colonization pattern in freshwater systems in Europe. Nevertheless, there is a persisting disagreement according to the investigated fish species. The project suggests to compare colonisation strategies of two species occurring in the same river system but inhabiting different parts of the river stretch. Results will reveal the genetic diversity and population structure of bothspecies and should help to understand the evolutionary process that led to the present distribution of fish gene pools in one of the main river systems of Europe. Obtained information could be useful in elucidating between recent and more ancient evolutionary events that have promoted species diversification.

Identifikácia a expresia neuropeptidov v priadke morušovej (Bombyx mori)
Identification and expression of neuropeptides in the silkworm (Bombyx mori)
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Ing. Roller Ladislav PhD.
Annotation: Neuropeptides play a central role in the control of development, reproduction, behavior, feeding and many other physiological processes in Metazoa. In this project we use bioinformatics to identify new genes encoding neuropeptides and in situ hybridization (ISH) to confirm their expression in the silkworm (Bombyx mori). Next we will analyze spatial expression of all known neuropeptide genes using ISH, fluorescent immunohistochemistry and targeted expression of green fluorescent protein. We aim at detection of neuropeptides in the central and peripheral neurons and in the endocrine midgut cells in larval, pupal and adult stages. This extensive analysis yield first data on expression patterns of genes encoding novel neuropeptides and first descriptions of 15 peptidergic systems signaling insect neuropeptides in Lepidoptera. Our results will be published in a monograph describing peptidergic cells in B. mori. This comprehensive work will provide basis for functional studies of more than 40 neuropeptide genes.

Interakcie medzi kliešťami prenášanými mikroorganizmami a mechanizmy ich prenosu.
Interactions between tick-borne microorganisms and mechanisms of their transmission
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Rusňáková Tarageľová Veronika PhD.
Annotation: Ticks are important vectors of pathogens that cause animal and human diseases. The most of tick-bornediseases are characterized by the phenomenon of natural focality. In natural foci, the infection can spread inclose proximity to humans, as evidenced by an increase in urban and suburban foci. The relationships betweenthe pathogenic agents of diseases and their vectors co-evolved under appropriate environmental conditions. Therelationship between tick-borne pathogens are studied at the level pathogen – host, pathogen – vector and vector– host. The interactions between pathogen, tick and host represent a triangle with three interfaces: pathogeninfection of host, pathogen infection of tick and tick feeding on a host. Our interest focuses on the relationshipsbetween vectors and their hosts, as well as among microorganisms in mixed infections, which play an importantrole in the of the pathogen circulation in natural foci.

Influence of experimental manipulations of abundance of the haematophagous ectoparasite Carnus hemapterus and of saprophagous/necrophagous diptersn larvae on immunological and conditional parameters of European bee-eaters chicks (Merops apiaster)
Program: VEGA
Project leader: RNDr. Krištofík Ján CSc.
Annotation: We will study reactions of innate and acquired immunity of European bee-eater (Merops apiaster) chicks on experimentally induced changes in abundance of the haematophagous ectoparasite (Carnus hemapterus) and sapro- or/and necrophagous dipteran larvae. They are abundant in nest cavities of bee-eater situated on end of more than 1 meter long galleries in loamy-sandy perpendicular walls. Their influence on development of bee-eater chicks is not sufficiently investigated. In some nests we will experimentally increase or reduce abundance of C. hemapterus, while in others abundance of sapro- or/and necrophagous larvae. In a part of the chicks we will apply phytohaemagglutinin in the wing webbing and sheep red blood cells into peritoneum. We will study the immunity response – skin-swelling, forming of immunoglobulines, chick condition, sedimentation and haematocrit of differently aged chicks in order also to find out differences in their reaction in dependence on their age.

Alpine ponds – sensitive indicators of environmental changes: macroinvertebrates and determinants of their multilevel diversity
Program: VEGA
Project leader: RNDr. Čiamporová-Zaťovičová Zuzana PhD.
Annotation: The project focuses on a multidisciplinary analysis of macroinvertebrates from alpine ponds in the Tatra Mts. To achieve objectives of the project, study of 60 ponds is expected. These are an important and irreplaceable part of (sub)alpine ecosystems and may, in terms of effective nature protection, serve as an early warning systems and biotopes suitable for long-term monitoring. In this project various methods and approaches of data processing will be used, combination of which will provide a unique knowledge in respective field.Expected outcomes will provide a precise picture of macroinvertebrates structure of these vulnerable biotopes sensitive to environmental changes, allow detection of impact of various env. gradients, and prediction of changes in zoocoenoses depending on changes in the environment. Genetic structure of model species populations allow to identify centers of diversity, main factors affecting variability and indicates trends in dispersal of species in case of expected env. changes.

Ostrovná biogeografia izolovaných vodných plôch
Island biogeography of the isolated water bodies
Program: VEGA
Project leader: RNDr. Illyová Marta PhD.
Annotation: The project is focused on comparison of species diversity of different types of isolated aquatic habitats in lowland areas of Slovakia. The artificially dig pits in the landscape are unique ecosystems offering a valuable possibility to study colonization of a new habitat in time, succession toward the climax and the subsequent decline of species. The principles of island ecology can be used for evaluation of species diversity of planktonic Crustaceans and molluscs in isolated water bodies. The investigation will run in several isolated aquatic habitats of different age, size and isolation degree in the landscape. As reference localities, we will use relatively old material pits situated out of the floodplains, which had arisen in the past at exploitation of the material for dike construction.

TRANSNEURO – Využitie trensgénnych postupov pri funkčnej analýze neuropeptidov a ich receptorov regulujúcich správanie a vývin hmyzu
Utilization of transgenic approaches for functional analysis of neuropeptides and their receptors regulating behavior and development in insects
Program: SRDA
Project leader: Ing. Roller Ladislav PhD.
Annotation: In this project we will utilize methods of molecular biology, transgenic approaches and physiological experiments to elucidate mechanisms of action of neuropeptides and their receptors necessary for development and behavior in the model species (Bombyx mori). We will focus on identification of complex neuroendocrine interactions between ecdysis triggering hormones (ETH) and their target neurons in the CNS and endocrine organs producing ETH receptors (ETHR). We will use techniques of immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization for identification of the target cells expressing ETHR. Molecular methods will be used for identification of genes encoding neuropeptides that are expressed in the ETHR neurons and endocrine cells. We will utilize the baculovirus expression system for identification of promoters for specific neuropeptide genes that will be used for targeted expression of molecular markers in the ETHR cells. Transgenic lines producing those molecular markers in the target ETHR neurons and organs will be used for functional analysis in behavioral assays in vivo and for Ca2+ imaging and electrophysiology in vitro. Anticipated results are important for understanding of molecular mechanisms for behavior and development that require complex neuroendocrine regulation between peripheral endocrine organs and the CNS.

Aké mechanizmy sa podieľajú pri motivácii rýb k využívaniu príbrežných habitatov na nížinných riekach?
What are the driving forces for the use of inshore riverine habitats by fish species?
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Pekárik Ladislav Ph.D
Annotation: The proposed project is dealing with the phenomenon of diel dynamics of fish species between offshore and inshore habitats. On the model area of six lowland rivers in Slovakia, we will test three hypotheses whether the use of the inshore area is driven by environmental gradients, feeding activity or predator avoidance. We will follow the variability of environmental variables during the diel period that could be important for fish energetic costs. Also feeding activity connected with the activity of prey items or occurrence of predators could have an important role in diel distribution patterns. We will follow the diel dynamics of net-zooplankton and drifting organisms and the diversity of macroinvertebrates for the purposes of stomach contents analyses. Additionally, we will analyse the intensity of infection of random representative samples to avoid the fish behaviour changes caused by parasites. The side effect of the project includes recommendations for the lowland river monitoring programmes of fishes.

Annotation: The aim of the project is to develop oligo-chip that will detect all relevant tick-borne bacteria present in central Europe in one step. To design the oligonucleotide probes, it is necessary to know DNA sequences of the microorganisms that will be targeted by DNA-chip. We will type all new Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. strains as well as members of the family Anaplasmataceae by the PCR-based methods. Representative samples of each type will be sequenced and oligonucleotide probes will be designed. Probes for the known species will be designed by the comparisions of these sequences available in the Genbank. Implementation of nested PCR will increase the sensitivity of the oligo-chip. Final DNA-chip will be tested on a sample of experimentaly infected ticks as well as ticks collected from the nature. Sensitivity, specificity and discriminatory power of the DNA-chip with the conventional detection methods will be compared and evaluated
