Background: Acute effects of physical exercise on the deformational behaviour of articular cartilage and changes in cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) are definite. However, conclusive positive effects of fitness exercise on functional adaptation of articular cartilage have not been proved.

Wireless Monitoring of ECG Signal in Infants Using SWM and DWT Techniques
Rashid, Haroon; Qadir, Zakria; Zia, Moaz; Nesimoglu, Tayfun (2018-11-02)
Human heart cardiac muscles activities can be represented graphically using electrical impulses. Electrocardiography (ECG) signals are very important for physicians to diagnose heart disease. In this study, Bluetooth device is used to transmit data wirelessly. For this purpose, the generated signal from heart beat sensor is analyzed in MATLAB using Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) techniques. ECG Simulator compares the actual signal of infants with the reference signal and n...
Acute effects of local vibration on muscle performance at different durations and frequencies
Yıldırım, Ahmet; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2010)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the acute effects of local vibration on muscle performance at different durations and frequencies. Fifteen male handball players participated in the study voluntarily. University’s Ethics Committee approved the study and the informed consent forms were filled by all participants. Different vibration durations, (10 sec, 1 min, 10 min), different frequencies (40 and 80 Hz), dominancy (dominant and non-dominant) and conditions (vibration and no-vibration) wer...
Missense Genetic Polymorphisms of Microsomal (EPHX1) and Soluble Epoxide Hydrolase (EPHX2) and Their Relation to the Risk of Large Artery Atherosclerotic Ischemic Stroke in a Turkish Population
Demirdogen, Birsen Can; Micoogullari, Yagmur; Ozcelik, Aysun Turkanoglu; Adalı, Orhan (2020-01-01)
Purpose: Soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) and microsomal epoxide hydrolase (mEH) both catalyze the metabolism of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs), lipid signaling molecules that are protective against ischemic brain injury owing to their participation in the regulation of vascular tone and cerebral blood flow. In addition, mEH metabolizes polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, one of the causative factors of atherosclerotic lesion development. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of enzyme activ...
Design and in vitro testing of a peripheral nerve guide
Tamay, Dilara Göksu; Özen, Can.; Department of Biotechnology (2019)
Regeneration after peripheral nerve injury (PNI) is limited as chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans (CSPGs) within the scar tissue inhibit axon outgrowth. Nerve guides (NGs) are alternatives to the “gold standard” autografting, which has limitations including donor site morbidity and limited tissue availability. NGs are tubular constructs designed to form a bridge between the transected nerve ends, provide physical support, and achieve axon guidance via topographical and/or chemical cues. This study aims to de...
Anatomical meniscus construct with zone specific biochemical composition and structural organization
Bahcecioglu, G.; Bilgen, B.; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2019-10-01)
A PCL/hydrogel construct that would mimic the structural organization, biochemistry and anatomy of meniscus was engineered. The compressive (380 +/- 40 kPa) and tensile modulus (18.2 +/- 0.9 MPa) of the PCL scaffolds were increased significantly when constructs were printed with a shifted design and circumferential strands mimicking the collagen organization in native tissue (p < 0.05). Presence of circumferentially aligned PCL strands also led to elongation and alignment of the human fibrochondrocytes. Gen...
