The iodine-125 analog of the dopaminergically selective cocaine analog 3 beta-(4-iodophenyl)tropane-2 beta-carboxylic acid isopropyl ester (RT1-121) was evaluated as a probe for the dopamine transporter in rat striatum. Saturation and kinetic studies indicated that [125I]RTI-121 binds to both high and low affinity components. The Kd of the high affinity(More)
The novel cocaine analog RTI-121 [3 beta-(4-iodophenyl)tropane-2 beta-carboxylic acid isopropyl ester] was evaluated as a probe for the in vitro labeling and localization of the dopamine transporter in the human brain. Saturation binding experiments conducted in sucrose-phosphate buffer (10 mM sodium phosphate, pH 7.4, 0.32 M sucrose) revealed high- and(More)
A selective ligand for the dopamine transporter 3 beta-(4-iodophenyl)tropan-2 beta-carboxylic acid isopropyl ester (RTI-121) has been labeled with iodine-125 by electrophilic radioiododestannylation. The [125I]RTI-121 was obtained in good yield (86 +/- 7%, n = 3) with high radiochemical purity (> 99%) and specific radioactivity (1210-1950 mCi/mumol). After(More)
