Poor trunk flexibility is associated with arterial stiffening.
Flexibility is one of the components of physical fitness as well as cardiorespiratory fitness and muscular strength and endurance. Flexibility has long been considered a major component in theExpand

Effect of nucleos(t)ide analogue therapy on hepatocarcinogenesis in chronic hepatitis B patients: a propensity score analysis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Some patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection progress to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the long-term effect of nucleos(t)ide analogue (NA) therapy onExpand

Low-frequency oscillation of sympathetic nerve activity decreases during development of tilt-induced syncope preceding sympathetic withdrawal and bradycardia.
Sympathetic activation during orthostatic stress is accompanied by a marked increase in low-frequency (LF, approximately 0.1-Hz) oscillation of sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) when arterial pressureExpand

Longer Time Spent in Light Physical Activity Is Associated With Reduced Arterial Stiffness in Older Adults
Habitual moderate-to-vigorous–intensity physical activity attenuates arterial stiffening. However, it is unclear whether light physical activity also attenuates arterial stiffening. It is alsoExpand

Mechanism of 4-nitrophenol oxidation in Rhodococcus sp. Strain PN1: characterization of the two-component 4-nitrophenol hydroxylase and regulation of its expression.
4-Nitrophenol (4-NP) is a toxic product of the hydrolysis of organophosphorus pesticides such as parathion in soil. Rhodococcus sp. strain PN1 degrades 4-NP via 4-nitrocatechol (4-NC) for use as theExpand
