K-ras mutation appears in about 60% of patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This frequency and its presence in normal appearing tissues point to the potential of ras oncogene mutation to serve as a good biomarker. Using enriched PCR (EPCR), which enables the detection of one mutant allele in the presence of 10,000 normal alleles, we have(More)

We wanted to test whether octopamine could also act as an appetitive stimulus in courtship conditioning, a paradigm in which training with an unreceptive female (such as a decapitated virgin) causes a subsequent decrease in courtship behavior in male(More)
