Table 1 Total receptor BP determined in either endocrine or exocrine tissue homogenates (n = 4)

From: Decreased defluorination using the novel beta-cell imaging agent [18F]FE-DTBZ-d4 in pigs examined by PET

BP = B max/K d a
Tissue batch Islet Exocrine
1 29.9 1.0
2 50.1 0.9
3 19.0 0.3
4 9.1 4.5
Average 27.9 1.7
SEM 8.8 1.0
  1. aBP was significantly different in the islet and exocrine homogenates (islet/exocrine = 16.0, p < 0.05). For reference, the BP values for the non-deuterated analogue in the islet and exocrine homogenates were 110.4 and 9.8, respectively. BP, binding potential; SEM, standard error of the mean.
