BACKGROUND Potential new radioligands for the noninvasive imaging of cardiac beta-adrenoceptors with single-photon emission computed tomography were investigated. METHODS AND RESULTS Two iodinated derivatives of CGP12177 para (S-CYBL2B) and ortho (CYBL2A) substituted CGP12177 and an iodinated form of nadolol (CYBL1) were synthesized. Their affinity was(More)
A series of iodinated thiadiazolyltetrahydro-1-methyl-pyridine (TZTP) compounds was synthesized and evaluated in vitro and in vivo as potential radioligands for imaging of the muscarinic M2 receptor subtype with SPET. One of these compounds, 5-(E)-iodopentenylthio-TZTP, has high in vitro affinity (Ki = 4.9 nM) and moderate selectivity for the muscarinic M2(More)
Five putative iodinated progesterone receptor (PR) binding ligands were synthesized and evaluated as potential imaging agents for PR-positive human breast tumours. Two compounds (E- and Z-17-hydroxy-21-iodo-19-nor-17alpha-pregna-4,20-dien-3-one; E- and Z-IPG1) were previously described, but are re-evaluated. The other three were novel compounds: two(More)
A new (radio)iodinated, beta-adrenoceptor ligand, (S)-(-)-4-[3-[(1,1-dimethyl-3-iodo-(2E)-propenyl)-amino]-2- hydroxypropoxy]carbazole (CYBL8E, 1), was prepared. 1 is an iodinated analogue of the high-affinity beta-adrenoceptor antagonist carazolol (2). The asymmetric synthesis was achieved in four steps starting from 4-hydroxycarbazole. The(More)
Disturbances of the cerebral cholinergic neurotransmitter system are present in neurodegenerative disorders. SPECT or PET imaging, using radiotracers that selectively target muscarinic receptor subtypes, may be of value for in vivo evaluation of such conditions. 6β-acetoxynortropane, a potent muscarinic M(2) receptor agonist, has previously demonstrated(More)
On the basis of the observed high selective binding to both the human and rat progesterone receptor (PR) in vitro, three 17alpha-iodovinyl-substituted nortestosterone derivatives, i.e., the Z-isomer of 17alpha-iodovinyl-19-nortestosterone (Z-IVNT; Z-IPG1) and both the stereoisomers of 17alpha-iodovinyl-18-methyl-11-methylene-19-nortestosterone (E- and(More)
Cardiac beta-adrenoceptors are assumed to play a key role in chronic heart failure. Although several radioligands labeled with 11C or 18F have been synthesized for imaging purposes with positron emission tomography (PET), so far no optimal ligands are available to image cardiac beta-adrenoceptors using single photon emission tomography (SPECT). In the(More)
The asymmetric synthesis of a series of iodinated beta-adrenoceptor ligands is described. One ligand, (S)-(-)-[1-(2-iodophenoxy)]-3'-(tert-butylamino)-2'-propanol (CYBL3), is based on the beta-adrenoceptor antagonist penbutolol. The other ligands are N-iodovinyl and N-iodoaryl analogues of the beta-adrenoceptor antagonist CGP12177. These have been(More)
We studied the potential of both stereoisomers of 17alpha-[123I]iodovinyloestradiol (E- and Z-[123I]IVE) and of 11beta-methoxy-17alpha-[123I]iodovinyloestradiol (E- and Z-[123I]MIVE) as suitable radioligands for the imaging of oestrogen receptor(ER)-positive human breast tumours. The 17alpha-[123I]iodovinyloestradiols were prepared stereospecifically by(More)
We have synthesized and evaluated E-11beta-nitrato-17alpha-iodovinylestradiol (E-NIVE; E-3c) and its 123I-labelled form, as a new potential radioligand for imaging of estrogen receptor (ER)-positive human breast tumors. E-[123I]NIVE was prepared by stereospecific iododestannylation of the E-tri-n-butylstannylvinyl precursor (E-2c), obtained from reaction of(More)
