Stabilities of 67Ga- and 111In-Labeled Transferrin In Vitro
Abstract:We attempted to develop a stable radiolabeled transferrin (Tf) useful in experimental studies related to Tf receptor. 67Ga and 111In were used as labeling radioisotopes. The results from gel chromatography, dialysis, and electrophoresis showed that 111In-DTPA-Tf was the most stable among the radiolabeled Tfs examined in the present study. 111In- DTPA-Tf was also the most stable radiolabeled transferrin in the blood.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
