From: Correlation between 18F-1-amino-3-fluorocyclobutane-1-carboxylic acid (18F-fluciclovine) uptake and expression of alanine-serine-cysteine-transporter 2 (ASCT2) and L-type amino acid transporter 1 (LAT1) in primary prostate cancer

Relationship between uptake of 18F-fluciclovine and amino acid transporter expression in localized prostate cancer. Time course of uptake, expressed as SUVmax of six consecutive 4-min frames and indicated by their middle time point is shown in comparison to ASCT2 (a) and LAT1 (b) represented in two staining intensity subgroups. For ASCT2, 1–2 denotes low-to-moderate and 3 high expression in a. For LAT1, 0–1 denotes negative-to-low and 2 moderate expression in b, respectively
