Synthesis and evaluation of an 18F‐labeled derivative of F3 for targeting surface‐expressed nucleolin in cancer and tumor endothelial cells


The surface overexpression of nucleolin provides an anchor for the specific attachment of biomolecules to cancer and angiogenic endothelial cells. The peptide F3 is a high-affinity ligand of the nucleolin receptor (NR) that has been investigated as a carrier to deliver biologically active molecules to tumors for both therapeutic and imaging applications.
