Novel diamide dimercaptide (N2S2) ligands 4, 5, and 8 have been synthesized and evaluated as potential renal radiopharmaceuticals. The target compounds were prepared in modest overall yields of 22%, 19%, and 20%, respectively, using readily available starting materials. Following in situ deprotection, 99mTc complexes of high radiochemical purity were obtained in excellent yield and were found to be stable for up to 6 h. The 99Tc complex of ligand 8 was isolated as the AsPh4 salt. The X-ray crystallographic data for [99TcO(8)]AsPh4 (space group P2(1)/n: Z = 4, a = 9.342(3) A; b = 18.594(5) A; c = 18.417(7) A; beta, deg = 90.61(3); V, A3 = 3199.1(20)) show that the Tc is bound to both thiolate sulfur atoms and to two deprotonated amide nitrogen atoms. The coordination geometry about the Tc is square-pyramidal with an -yl oxygen atom in the apical position. The Tc-N bond distances (2.002(12) and 1.984(12) A), the Tc-S bond distances (2.300(5) and 2.286(5) A), and the Tc-O bond distance (1.667(11) A) are in good agreement with bond lengths reported for similar complexes. The carboxylate groups are not bonded to the Tc atom in the solid state, nor in CDCl3 solution, as evidenced by X-ray crystal data and solution NMR data, respectiv...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
