Abstract

The tandem 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition-retro-Diels-Alder (tandem crDA) reaction is presented as a versatile method for metal-free chemoselective conjugation of a DTPA radiolabel to N-delta-azido-cyclo(-Arg-Gly-Asp-d-Phe-Orn-) via oxanorbornadiene derivatives. To this end, the behavior of several trifluoromethyl-substituted oxanorbornadiene derivatives in the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition was studied and optimized to give a clean and efficient method for bio-orthogonal ligation in an aqueous environment. After radioisotope treatment, the resulting 111In-labeled c(RGD)-CF3-triazole-DTPA conjugate was subjected to preliminary biological evaluation and showed high affinity for alpha(v)beta(3) (IC(50)=192 nM) and favorable pharmacokinetics.
