DREADDs in non-human primates

There is a series of three abstracts now on-line for the SFN2014 meeting relating what appears to be a very comprehensive analysis of DREADDs as tools to interrogate circuits, behavior and perception in non-human primates (NHP).

The first of the abstracts apparently uses 11C-CNO as a PET ligand to validate hM4Di expression in vivo which is quite nifty.

The abstracts are listed below and may be accessed via this on-line tool.  

Presentation Title:In vivo PET imaging of the behaviorally active designer receptor in macaque monkeys

Presentation Title:Reversible DREADD inactivation of less than 10% of Orbitofrontal cortex neurons in interconnection with rhinal cortex is sufficient to disrupt cue discrimination in monkeys
Presentation Title:Reversible DREADD inactivation of orbitofrontal cortex neurons in rhesus monkeys with contralateral rhinal cortex removal disrupts cued reward discrimination. I. Behavioral analysis

How best to dissolve CNO ...it depends on what it is soluble in (and that depends on the particular polymorph)
