Abstract
Campylobacter fetus subsp. venerealis (Cfv) je patogen koji kolonizira goveđi spolni sustav uzrokujući pobačaj i neplodnost. Pretpostavlja se da geni fic1 i fic2, pronađeni u genomu ove podvrste, doprinose njenoj virulentnosti i prilagodbi na domaćina, te da produkti ovih gena, efektorni proteini Fic1 i Fic2, funkcioniraju kao toksin-antitoksin sustav unutar bakterijske stanice. Navedeni geni proučavani su u ovom radu te je predložen njihov odnos i funkcija unutar Cfv.

Parallel abstract (English)
Campylobacter fetus subsp. venerealis (Cfv) is a pathogen which colonizes bovine genital tract, causing abortion and infetility. It is presumed that fic1 and fic2 genes, present in the genome of this subspecies, contribute to its virulence and host specificity, and that products of these genes, effector proteins Fic1 and Fic2, function as toxin-antitoxin system within the bacterial cell. Above mentioned genes are investigated in this thesis, and their relation and function within Cfv is suggested.
