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...
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...
Mechanical design, analysis, and laboratory testing of a dental implant with axial flexibility similar to natural tooth with periodontal ligament
Pektas, Omer; Tönük, Ergin (2014-11-01)
At the interface between the jawbone and the roots of natural teeth, a thin, elastic, shock-absorbing tissue, called the periodontal ligament, forms a cushion which provides certain flexibility under mechanical loading. The dental restorations supported by implants, however, involve comparatively rigid connections to the jawbone. This causes overloading of the implant while bearing functional loading together with neighboring natural teeth, which leads to high stresses within the implant system and in the j...
