BACKGROUND The development of a metabolically stable radioiodination reagent for coupling to monoclonal antibodies is a desirable goal. The radioiodination of monoclonal antibodies D612 and 17-1A reactive with human colon cancer with 3-iodophenylisothiocyanate has been investigated. This new ligand, on coupling with monoclonal antibodies, should form a(More)
BACKGROUND The development of new bifunctional chelating agents for the labeling of monoclonal antibodies with radiometals is a desirable goal in the area of radioimmunodetection and radioimmunotherapy of cancer. The authors have developed a new N3S-ligand, N-(S-acetylmercaptoacetyl) (p-NCS)phenylalanylglycylglycine ethyl ester (MAIPGG) for technetium-99m(More)
A new bifunctional chelating agent MAGIPG was synthesized in good yield using Boc-p-nitro-phenylalanine as the starting material. 99mTc-labeled-MAGIPG-D612 conjugates reactive with human colon cancer were prepared in 3% to 15% yield with a radiochemical purity of 63% to 97%. 186Re-labeled MAGIPG-D612 conjugates were prepared with a 7% to 30% yield and a(More)
The preparation of a new class of isothiocyanatopeptide bifunctional chelating agents, Boc-glycyl-L-(p-NCS)phenylalanylglycylglycine ethyl ester 1, N-(S-acetylmercaptoacetyl)-L-(p-NCS)phenylalanylglycylglycine ethyl ester 2, and N-(S-acetylmercaptoacetyl)glycyl-L-(p-NCS)phenylalanylglycine ethyl ester 3, starting from Boc-L-(p-nitro)phenylalanine 5 is(More)
Interferon Regulatory Factor-8 (IRF-8) serves as a key factor in the hierarchical differentiation towards monocyte/dendritic cell lineages. While much insight has been accumulated into the mechanisms essential for its hematopoietic specific expression, the mode of restricting IRF-8 expression in non-hematopoietic cells is still unknown. Here we show that(More)
A new radioiodination reagent, 3-iodophenylisothiocyanate (3-IPI) has been developed for coupling to monoclonal antibodies. The starting material, 3-tri-n-butylstannylphenylisothiocyanate was prepared via a reaction of hexabutylditin with 3-bromoaniline, followed by treatment with thiophosgene with an overall yield of 72%. The radioiodination of this tin(More)
