Monoiodo-[Trp11]neurotensin, a highly radioactive ligand of neurotensin receptors. Preparation, biological activity, and binding properties to rat brain synaptic membranes



Monoiodo-[Trp11]neurotensin, a highly radioactive ligand of neurotensin receptors. Preparation, biological activity, and binding properties to rat brain synaptic membranes



Journal of Biological Chemistry 258(6): 3476-3481



Iodination of [Trp11]neurotensin, a neurotensin analogue in which tyrosine 11 has been substituted by a tryptophan, led to the incorporation of one or two iodine atoms on the single tyrosine residue in position 3. Both mono- and diiodinated derivatives were purified by ion exchange chromatography and their biological activity in an in vitro bioassay involving rat ileum was found to be similar to that of native neurotensin. The 125I-labeled monoiodo derivative of [Trp11]neurotensin bound specifically and reversibly to rat brain synaptic membranes. The binding isotherm was biphasic and could be described by postulating the existence of two different classes of independent binding sites with dissociation constants of 0.1 and 4.7 nM. The specificity of a series of neurotensin analogues for both high and low affinity binding sites was the same as that previously observed in other neurotensin radioreceptor assays. The low affinity binding sites appeared to be similar to the single class of sites described in other binding studies. The high affinity binding sites which were not previously detected might represent either a new class of neurotensin receptors or a high affinity state for a fraction of a single population of neurotensin receptors.
