Synthesis, fluorometric and immunological properties of two new fluorescent derivatives of progesterone are reported. Both compounds were obtained from 11 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone 11-hemisuccinate; the fluorescent molecules were joined to the steroid by bifunctional arms. The first of these is cysteamine whose thiol group was reacted with N-(3… CONTINUE READING
