Mutation in acetylcholinesterase1 associated with triazophos resistance in rice stem borer, Chilo suppressalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
Two full-length genes encoding different acetylcholinesterases (AChEs), designated as Ch-ace1 and Ch-ace2 were cloned from strains of the rice stern borer (Chilo suppressalis) susceptible and resistant to the organophosphate ...
Scan-time reduction using noise-matched images in 2- and 3-dimensional bismuth germanate PET/CT : clinical study in head and neck cancer
We quantitatively and qualitatively investigated 2-dimensional (2D) and 3-dimensional (3D) imaging with scan-time reduction in 14 patients with 17 lesions, who had known or suspected head and neck cancer, using a bismuth ...
