Abstract :

OBJECTIVES: Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is an important cholinergic marker for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). A recent study has demonstrated that C-labelled 5,7-dihydro-7-methyl-3-[2-[1-(phenylmethyl)-4-piperidinyl]ethyl]-6H-pyrrolo[3,2-f ]-1,2-benzisoxazol-6-one (CP-126,998) shows promising results. The demethylated form of this ligand (CP-118,954) is a more potent and selective inhibitor than CP-126,998. In this study, therefore, CP-118,954 was labelled with F and evaluated for the in vivo mapping of AChE.
METHODS: The 4-fluoro (1). and 2-fluoro (2). derivatives of CP-118,954 were synthesized from 4-methyl-3-nitroanisole in 11 steps. Their in vitro binding affinities to AChE were measured using Ellman's method. The preparation of [F]-1 was carried out by reductive alkylation of the piperidine precursor with 4-[F]-fluorobenzaldehyde, followed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) purification. In vitro autoradiography was performed by incubating rat brain coronal slices with [F]-1. Tissue distribution studies were performed in mouse brain and the data were expressed as the percentage of the injected dose per gram of tissue (%ID x g).
RESULTS: Two fluorine-substituted AChE inhibitors were synthesized and their in vitro binding data showed that the 4-fluoro and 2-fluoro derivatives (1 and 2) had similar or superior binding affinity to that of the unsubstituted ligand, CP-118,954. The F-labelled ligand was synthesized in 20-35% radiochemical yield (EOS) and with high effective specific activity (36-42 GBq x micromol). Autoradiography showed high uptake of [F]-1 in the striatum and this striatal uptake was completely inhibited by the unlabelled ligand 1. Tissue distribution studies demonstrated that high radioactivity was accumulated in the striatum, an AChE-rich region.
CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that [F]-1 may hold promise as a radioligand for the in vivo mapping of AChE.
