Movement kinematics and proprioception in post-stroke spasticity: assessment using the Kinarm robotic exoskeleton (BMC, 2019)Background Motor impairment after stroke interferes with performance of everyday activities. Upper limb spasticity may further disrupt the movement patterns that enable optimal function; however, the specific features of ...
Depletion of Branched-Chain Aminotransferase 2 (BCAT2) Enzyme Impairs Myoblast 3 Survival and Myotube Formation (Wiley, 2019)Much is known about the positive effects of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) in regulating muscle protein metabolism. Comparatively much less is known about the effects of these amino acids and their metabolites in ...
CAPA neuropeptides and their receptor form an anti-diuretic hormone signalling system in the human disease vector, Aedes aegypti (Nature, 2020)Insect CAPA neuropeptides are homologs of mammalian neuromedin U and are known to influence ion and water balance by regulating the activity of the Malpighian ‘renal’ tubules (MTs). Several diuretic hormones are known to ...
