A cDNA encoding a polygalacturonase-inhibiting protein gene (SaiPGIPA) was identified from the citrus cultivar Sainumphung (Citrus sp.), one of the most popular cultivars in northern Thailand. SaiPGIPA was expressed in Escherichia coli cells, and the functional properties of citrus PGIP were analyzed. The PGIP fusion protein inhibited by a maximum of about(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Previous studies reported that the erector spinae muscle is more resistant to fatigue in healthy adult women than in men. However, no study has reported changes in back muscle fatigue with aging in healthy men and women. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate age-related changes in muscle fatigue of erector spinae muscle in men(More)
BACKGROUND Lumbar spondylolysis is a defect in the pars interarticularis that is common in young athletes; the stress distribution at the pars interarticularis is the highest in extension and rotation movements. The paraspinal muscles play an important role in stabilization of the lumbar spine; however, no study has assessed the properties of paraspinal(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the within-day and between-days reliability of surface electromyographic (EMG) power spectral analysis in assessing fatigability of the vastus medialis (VM) muscle during knee and hip flexion under constant load application. The subjects were 13 healthy adult men free of knee abnormalities. Surface EMG was recorded(More)
