The purpose of this study was to investigate joint kinematics of the kicking leg in Taekwondo and to examine the role of inter-joint coordination of the leg in producing the kicking velocity. A new inter-joint coordination index that encompasses three- dimensional hip and knee motions, was defined and applied to the joint kinematic results. Twelve elite(More)
Methionine sulphoxide reductases (Msr) catalyse the reduction of oxidized methionine to methionine. These enzymes are divided into two classes, MsrA and MsrB, according to substrate specificity. Although most MsrA and MsrB exist as separate enzymes, in some bacteria these two enzymes are fused to form a single polypeptide (MsrAB). Here, we report the first(More)
BACKGROUND Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture is one of the most common injuries associated with the knee. After ACL injury, knee joint stability can be altered, resulting in abnormal loading during functional activities. Since ACL-deficient (ACLD) knees are also vulnerable to translational and rotational instability, patients need to be wary of(More)
