Two substituted benzamides, FLB 524 and raclopride, were labeled with 11C and examined for their possible use as ligands for positron emission tomography (PET)-scan studies on dopamine-2 (D-2) receptors in the brains of monkeys and healthy human subjects. Both ligands allowed the in vivo visualization of D-2 receptor binding in the corpus striatum caudate(More)
The benzodiazepine antagonist Ro 15-1788 was labelled with [11C] and examined for possible use as ligand for PET scan studies on benzodiazepine receptors in the brain of cynomolgus monkeys and human subjects. [11C] Ro 15-1788 allowed the in vivo visualization of benzodiazepine receptor binding in cerebral and cerebellar cortical areas as well as in basal(More)
The flavivirus genus includes important human neurotropic pathogens like Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) and West-Nile virus (WNV). Flavivirus replication occurs at replication complexes, where the NS5 protein provides both RNA cap methyltransferase and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase activities. TBEVNS5 contains two PDZ binding motifs (PBMs) important(More)
High doses of 4-methylpyrazole (4-MP) could be administered to monkeys in long- and short-term experiments without yielding any general toxicity or any toxic influence on the retinal photoreceptors, the conduction of impulses through the retina or on the activity in the inner nuclear layer detectable by recording the electroretinogram (ERG). Both series(More)
One main cause of female infertility is the tubal factor, and interest in the role and function of the Fallopian tube has increased our knowledge about tubal infertility. In this study in monkeys, Cynomolgus (Macaca fascicularis), the tubal and uterine motility was recorded with a Millar microtransducer. The recordings were made during uterotubal, uterine(More)
