Katarina Bilikova
Katarina Bilikova

Head of the Dpt. of Molecular Apidology, Institute of Molecular Biology, Slovak Academy of Sciences. Her research is focused on the study of honeybee royal jelly (RJ) proteins and peptides. The main objective is to test their physiological activity from the point of view of the application in bee-keeping as well as for their potential impact on functional proteomics in medicine, namely therapeutic application of RJ proteins and peptides as antibiotics and immunostimulators. Her main discovery is the isolation and characterization of apsimin, a honeybee specific peptide and the demonstration of the antibiotic activity of royalisin as a antifoulbrood and antiungal factor of honeybee larval food. She showed a multifunctionality of apalbumins as a result of various posttranslational modifications of maternal RJ proteins. A simple ELISA method for quantitative determination of apaplbumin1, the major protein of honeybee RJ was developed, as a tool for characterizing honey authenticity and quality. She was a member of the Scientific Consortium of an International Project of Sequencing of Honeybee Genome.
