New beta-adrenergic receptor antagonists, 2-(R)-(+)- and 2-(S)-(-)-1-(9H-carbazol-4-yl-oxy)-3-[[1-(fluoromethyl)ethyl]amino ]-2-propanol ((S)- and (R)-fluorocarazolols), were labeled with fluorine-18 at the no-carrier-added level by reductive alkylation of desisopropylcarazolol (4-(2-hydroxy-3-amino-1-propoxy)carbazole) with [18F]fluoroacetone. The latter was prepared by nucleophilic substitution of fluoride on acetol tosylate and may serve as a useful synthetic precursor for other radiotracers. The radiochemical yield of [18F]fluorocarazolol (500-1200 Ci/mmol) from [18F]fluoride was 40 +/- 10% at the end of the 45 min synthesis. Chiral HPLC showed > 99% enantiomeric purity of 2-(S)- and 2-(R)-[18F]fluorocarazolols. The log P of fluorocarazolol was 2.2 at pH 7.4. The in vitro KD values of (S)- and (R)-fluorocarazolol for the beta-adrenergic receptor were measured in a rat heart preparation to be KD = 68 and 1128 pM, respectively. Biodistribution experiments in mice demonstrated specific beta-adrenergic receptor binding of (S)-[18F]fluorocarazolol. (R)-[18F]fluorocarazolol showed no observable specific binding to beta-receptors in vivo. The uptake of (R)-[18F]fluorocarazolol may therefore be used as an estimation of nonspecific ...Continue Reading

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
