Sekendiz, B, Cug., M, and Korkusuz, F. Effects of Swiss-ball core strength training on strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance in sedentary women. J Strength Cond Res 24(11): 3032-3040, 2010-The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Swiss-ball core strength training on trunk extensor (abdominal)/ flexor (lower back) and lower limb extensor (quadriceps)/flexor (hamstring) muscular strength, abdominal, lower back and leg endurance, flexibility and dynamic balance in sedentary women (n = 21; age = 34 +/- 8.09; height = 1.63 +/- 6.91 cm; weight = 64 +/- 8.69 kg) trained for 45 minutes, 3 d.wk(-1) for 12 weeks. Results of multivariate analysis revealed significant difference (p <= 0.05) between pre and postmeasures of 60 and 90 degrees s(-1) trunk flexion/extension, 60 and 240 degrees s(-1) lower limb flexion/extension (Biodex Isokinetic Dynamometer), abdominal endurance (curl-up test), lower back muscular endurance (modified Sorensen test), lower limb endurance (repetitive squat test), lower back flexibility (sit and reach test), and dynamic balance (functional reach test). The results support the fact that Swiss-ball core strength training exercises can be used to provide improvement in the aforementioned measures in sedentary women. In conclusion, this study provides practical implications for sedentary individuals, physiotherapists, strength and conditioning specialists who can benefit from core strength training with Swiss balls.

Celik, O., S.N. Kosar, F. Korkusuz, and M. Bozkurt. Reliability and validity of the modified Conconi test on Concept II rowing ergometers. J. Strength Cond. Res. 19(4):871-877. 2005.-The purpose of this study was to assess the reliability and validity of the modified Conconi test on Concept II rowing ergometers. Twenty-eight oarsmen conducted 3 performance tests on separate days. Reliability was assessed using the break point in heart rate (HR) linearity called the Conconi test (CT) and Conconi retest (CRT)...
Effects of High Hydrostatic Pressure Treatment on Water Absorption Properties of Bovine and Fish Gelatin
Gültekin, Necmiye Büşra; Alpas, Hami; Öztop, Halil Mecit (null; 2017-06-28)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of High Hydrostatic Pressure (HHP) treatment on physical properties of bovine (220, 240 and 250 bloom) and fish (240 bloom) gelatins. HHP treatment parameters were chosen as 1,000; 3,000; 5,000 bar at 40°C for 5 min. To obtain information about water absorption and gelation behavior of the treated gelatins, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) relaxometry experiments through transverse relaxation time (T2) measurements were conducted. The change...
Effect of substituents in sulfoxides on the enhancement of thermoelectric properties of PEDOT:PSS: experimental and modelling evidence
Zhu, Qiang; Yıldırım, Erol; Wang, Xizu; Kyaw, Aung Ko Ko; Tang, Tao; Soo, Xiang Yun Debbie; Wong, Zicong Marvin; Wu, Gang; Yang, Shuo-Wang; Xu, Jianwei (2020-06-01)
Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS), being the most popular conductive polymer, has been doped with various additives with the aim of improving its thermoelectric performance. Among all additives, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) has been widely used for various treatments. In this work, we designed and synthesized a series of aliphatic- and aromatic-substituted sulfoxides as dopants to improve the thermoelectric properties of PEDOT:PSS. It was found that the substituents in the sul...
Protein interaction approaches to assign a function for an estrogen responsive gene protein: CXXC5
Muyan, Mesut (null; 2017-06-24)
Estradiol (E2), the main estrogen hormone in circulation, is involved in the physiological regulation of many organs and tissues, including mammary tissue. E2 also plays a critical role in the initiation and development of breast cancer. Effects of E2 on cells are mediated by estrogen receptor (ER), which is a ligand-dependent transcription factor. Upon binding to E2, ER regulates the expression of target genes through genomic signaling pathways that result in alterations of cellular respo...
