  • Patent number: 9910044
    Abstract: Provided herein are screening methods for identifying arthropod repellent compounds based on modulation of ionotropic receptors, including an Ir40a receptor, an Ir93a receptor and an Ir25a receptor. Further provided are screening systems related to these methods. Such systems may include a sample that has one or more of the ionotropic receptors; and one or more compounds that each is a repellent for at least one arthropod species, wherein the one or more compound each modulates the activity of such ionotropic receptor(s). Further provided are one or more compounds identified using the screening methods described herein, and compositions containing such compounds.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 4469483
    Abstract: A silicone rubber catheter carries radiopaque stripes comprising a mixture of silicone rubber and the finely divided radiopaque material, the stripes being spaced from each other by transparent, longitudinal segments. The radiopaque stripes are preferably positioned in diametrically opposed, spaced relation to each other about the circumference of the catheter and occupy a total of 50.degree. to 270.degree. of the catheter circumference. The elongation of the catheter portion defining the stripes is preferably at least as great as the elongation of the catheter portion defining the transparent, longitudinal segments, and the tensile and tear strengths of the transparent segments are preferably higher, so that upon stretching of the catheter most of the stress can be diverted to the transparent segments of the catheter.
