As a part of our efforts to develop potential imaging agents for ascorbate bioactivity, 5-O-(4-[(125)I]iodobenzyl)-L-ascorbic acid ([(125)I]1) was prepared through a two-step sequence which involved radioiodo-destannylation of a protected tributylstannyl precursor 6, followed by hydrolysis in acidic methanol of the protecting groups in 61% overall radiochemical yield, with a radiochemical purity of over 98% and a specific activity of more than 15.4 GBq/μmol. Tissue distribution of [(125)I]1 in tumor-bearing mice showed signs of distribution profiles similar to the reported results for 6-deoxy-6-[(18)F]fluoro-L-ascorbic (6-(18)FAsA) acid and 6-deoxy-6-[(131)I]iodo-L-ascorbic acid (6-(131)IAsA) but with notable differences in the adrenal glands, in which considerably lower uptake of radioactivity and rapid clearance with time were observed. Pretreatment of mice with a known inhibitor of ascorbate transport, sulfinpyrazone, did not produce any significant change in the adrenal uptake of radioactivity after injection of [(125)I]1 compared to the control, suggesting that uptake in the adrenal glands is independent of the sodium-dependent vitamin C transporter 2 transport mechanism. Introduction of a bulky substituent at C-5 on AsA, such as an iodobenzyloxy group, may not be suitable for the design of analogs that may still be able to maintain characteristic distribution properties in vivo seen with AsA itself.
