Clinical use of Levovist, an ultrasound contrast agent, in the imaging of liver transplantation: assessment of the pre- and post-transplant patient
Abstract. Colour Doppler US is well established for imaging of hepatic vessels in the assessment of pre- and post-liver transplant patients. Unfortunately, a full colour Doppler US examination of theExpand

RNAi-mediated down-regulation of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) impedes wound-stress stimulation of anabasine synthesis in Nicotiana glauca.
Unlike most Nicotiana species, leaf tissues of the globally significant weed Nicotiana glauca Grah. (Argentinian tree tobacco) contains anabasine as the main component of its alkaloid pool, withExpand
