The widely used (18)F-prosthetic group N-succinimidyl-4-[(18)F]fluorobenzoate ([(18)F]SFB) and the recently developed N-[6-(4-[(18)F]fluorobenzylidene)aminooxyhexyl]maleimide ([(18)F]FBAM) were investigated for radiolabeling of two representative phosphatidylserine-binding peptides. The prosthetic groups were compared with respect to required reactions conditions for optimum labeling, radiolabeling yield and chemoselectivity. The N-terminus labeled product produced by reaction of [(18)F]SFB with binding peptide LIKKPF was produced in 18% radiochemical yield while no N-terminus labeled product could be isolated following [(18)F]SFB reaction with PDGLSR. When the peptides were modified by addition of a cysteine residue at the N-terminus they provided almost quantitative radiochemical yields with [(18)F]FBAM. Results indicate that for the peptides in this study, [(18)F]FBAM is a more useful prosthetic group compared to [(18)F]SFB due to its excellent chemoselectivity and high radiochemical yield.
