Ligand-Exchange Reaction of Labile "3+1" 99mTc(V) Complexes with SH Group-Containing Proteins
Seifert, S.; Gupta, A.; Syhre, R.; Spies, H.; Johannsen, B.
The reactivity of labile 3+1 mixed-ligand 99mTc complexes of the type [99mTcO(SES)(RS)] with SES being a tridentate dithiol ligand and glutathione or dimethylcysteamine as monodentate ligands RSH towards proteins was investigated in vitro and in vivo. It was found that the complexes undergo reversible transchelation reactions with SH group-containing components of blood such as albumin or hemoglobin. High labelling yields were obtained when 3+1 complexes with the tridentate SSS ligand were used. The biodistribution of blood proteins labelled by ligand-exchange reaction with the [99mTcO(SSS)] or [99mTcO(SNMeS)] core was studied and compared with the in vivo distribution of the labile 3+1 complexes containing glutathione as monodentate ligand.
