N-[2-(maleimido)ethyl]-3-(trimethylstannyl)benzamide, a molecule for radiohalogenation of proteins and peptides
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2015
In this work a new coupling reagent, N[2-(maleimido)ethyl]-3-(trimethylstannyl)benzamide, for radiohalogenation has been synthesized and characterized. The reagent is intended to either be attached to reduced disulfide bridges of proteins (making the halogenation site-specific) or to free terminal cysteine groups on peptides. The new reagent was also shown to be easily halogenated with inactive bromine and iodine as well as I-125 and At-211, indicating potential use within targeted radiotherapy.
