Development of PET and SPECT Probes for Glutamate Receptors
Current progress towards the development of PET and SPECT probes for GluRs is reviewed, finding several PET ligands for mGluRs have been successfully employed in clinical studies.
Selenium in Seafood Materials
Research interests in studying the biochemical nature of selenium have increased and the importance of this element as an essential micronutrient in many organisms has been well recognized. Selenium
The shell structure of the Recent Patellogastropoda (Mollusca: Gastropoda)
The relations between taxa and shell structural composition indicate that the Recent patellogastropods generally have distinctive and stable shell structures at the genus level.
Synthesis and evaluation of novel chalcone derivatives with (99m)Tc/Re complexes as potential probes for detection of β-amyloid plaques.
Four ( 99m)Tc-labeled chalcone derivatives and their corresponding rhenium analogues were tested as potential probes for imaging β-amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's brains, and the chalcones showed higher affinity for Aβ(1-42) aggregates than did (99m]Tc complexes.
A dual fluorinated and iodinated radiotracer for PET and SPECT imaging of β-amyloid plaques in the brain.
Characterisation of radioiodinated flavonoid derivatives for SPECT imaging of cerebral prion deposits
SPECT/computed tomography imaging and ex vivo autoradiography demonstrated that [123I]SC-OMe showed consistent brain distribution with the presence of PrPSc deposits in the mBSE-infected mice brain, appearing a promising SPECT radioligand for monitoring prion deposit levels in the living brain.
Absorption and retention characteristics of selenium in dorsal root ganglion neurons.
Investigation of absorption and retention characteristics of selenium from selenious acid (SA) and seleno-l-methionine (SeMet) in rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons found them to be retained in DRG neurons and then be utilized for the synthesis ofselenium-containing proteins, which implied the presence of a neuron-specific selenum retention mechanism.
