An important principle of the functional organization of plant cells is the targeting of proteins to specific subcellular locations. The physical location of proteins within the apoplasm/ rhizosphere at the root–soil interface positions them to play a strategic role in plant response to biotic and abiotic stress. We previously demonstrated that roots of(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability and validity of the Tekdyne hand dynamometer for measuring grip strength as compared with the Jamar dynamometer. Additionally, it was hypothesized that one to six weeks after carpal tunnel release (CTR) grip strength would appear to be greater when tested on a softer tool than when tested on the(More)
Extracytosolic plant proteins are involved in numerous processes including nutrient acquisition, communication with other soil organisms, protection from pathogens, and resistant to disease and toxic metals. We have developed an on-line database to provide the plant biology community with relevant information about extracytosolic plant proteins. Data for(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability of Tekdyne hand dynamometer in a controlled loading environment using the Instron 1331. Test-retest reliability, the intertool reliability of three different Tekdyne hand dynamometers, and the effects of surface area and the configuration of the forces applied to the Tekdyne hand dynamometer were(More)
