In this study, an inexpensive camera-observation system called the Crop Phenology Recording System (CPRS), which consists of a standard digital color camera (RGB cam) and a modified near-infrared (NIR) digital camera (NIR cam), was applied to estimate green leaf area index (LAI), total LAI, green leaf biomass and total dry biomass of stalks and leaves of(More)
In migration analysis of the brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål), in a tropical region, it is difficult to know the arrival timing of the immigrants because rice plants in different growth stages are simultaneously cultivated, and local insects may already occur in destination areas. Due to this analytical difficulty, additional information is(More)
A series of trans-3-oxospiro[(aza)isobenzofuran-1(3H),1'-cyclohexane]-4'-carboxamide derivatives were synthesized and profiled for NPY Y5 binding affinity, brain and CSF penetrability in rats, and susceptibility to human and mouse P-glycoprotein transporters in order to develop a PET ligand. Compound 12b exhibited an acceptable profile for a PET ligand, 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)
