Research interest:

Culturing and characterization of epithelial cells, especially rumen epithelial cells (REC); effects of different metabolites and hormones on the growing of REC; in vivo studies on the factors (short chain fatty acids and hormones) altering the physiological state and functions of the rumen epithelium; plant lectin binding of the REC; physiological activity of plant lectins on the REC. Effect of short chain fatty acid ad other histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors on primary epithelial cells cultures and different cell lines. Effects of HDAC inhibitors, antioxidants, proxidants on free radical, ROS/RNS , apoptosis and necrosis of gastrointestinal cell lines.

Hepatocytes and non-parerchymal cells (such as Kupffer cells) obtained from different animal species were isolated, characterized and cultured as primary mono- and co-cultures in 2D (two-dimensional) and 3D (three-dimensional) models. Influences of heat stress, mycotoxins and bacterial or viral products on the expression of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines; testing the effect of certain antimicrobial peptides and anti-inflammatory molecules in the above mentioned in vitro models.

Culturing of epithelial cells isolated from feline urinary bladder; characterization of the cultured cells and studying the pathological background of feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC) by testing possible factors in the pathomechanism of the disease.
