Abstract

Numerous radiolabeled peptides have been utilized for in vivo imaging of a variety of cell surface receptors. For applications in PET using [ 18F]fluorine, peptides are radiolabeled via a prosthetic group approach. We previously developed solution-phase 18F- "click" radio-labeling and solid-phase radiolabeling using 4-[ 18F]fiuorobenzoic and 2-[18F]fluoropropionic acids. Here we compare the three different radiolabeling approaches and report the effects on PET imaging and pharmacokinetics. The prosthetic groups did have an effect; metabolites with significantly different polarities were observed.
