Two histamine H3 receptor (H3R) inverse agonist PET tracers have been synthesized and characterized in preclinical studies. Each tracer has high affinity for the histamine H3 receptor, has suitable lipophilicity, and neither is a substrate for the P-glycoprotein efflux pump. A common phenolic precursor was used to synthesize each tracer with high specific(More)
Neuropeptide Y receptor subtype 1 (NPY Y1) has been implicated in appetite regulation, and antagonists of NPY Y1 are being explored as potential therapeutics for obesity. An NPY Y1 PET tracer is useful for determining the level of target engagement by NPY Y1 antagonists in preclinical and clinical studies. Here we report the synthesis and evaluation of(More)
This report first describes the morphological and habitat characteristics of larval and juvenile Roughscale Sole Clidoderma asperrimum. Five metamorphosing larvae (22.1–31.7 mm standard length, SL) and 12 juveniles (23.7–46.4 mm SL) were collected from two locations in coastal waters of northeastern Japan, Shizugawa Bay (rocky habitats, 6–12 m depth) and(More)
We have developed and characterized [(35)S]4a as a potent and selective radioligand for melanin-concentrating hormone 1-receptor (MCH1R). Compound [(35)S]4a showed appreciable specific signals in brain slices prepared from wild-type mice but not from MCH1R deficient mice, confirming the specificity and utility of [(35)S]4a as a selective MCH1R radioligand(More)
The literature has reports on the influence of spontaneous otoacoustic emission (SOAE) on transiently evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE), but most do not take factors such as age, gender, and hearing level into consideration. We focused on these conditions. Subjects were 78 women with normal hearing aged 19 to 24 years (mean = 21.4). All had pure tone(More)
In many studies, Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions (EOAEs) have been routinely documented in subjects with normal middle ear function showing tympanogram (TG) A type. However, middle ear dysfunction may influence the measurements of EOAEs. We investigated the EOAEs in ears with secretory otitis media (SOM) in order to understand the effects of middle ear(More)
