Abstract

Two new endothelin receptor radioligands, [125I]-BQ3020 and [125I]-[Ala1,3,11,15]ET-1, were characterized in tissue sections of human right atrium and left ventricle. Both radioligands had high affinity ([125I]-BQ3020 right atrium: KD = 0.145 +/- 0.037 nM, left ventricle: KD = 0.107 +/- 0.004 nM; [125I]-[Ala1,3,11,15]ET-1 right atrium: KD = 0.239 +/- 0.036 nM, left ventricle: KD = 0.199 +/- 0.027 nM). Competition binding experiments were performed in the left ventricle. The selective ETA receptor compound BQ123 competed with low affinity against [125I]-BQ3020 (KD = 28.7 +/- 2.7 microM) and [125I]-[Ala1,3,11,15]ET-1 (KD = 28.5 +/- 4.2 microM). The selective ETB receptor compound BQ3020 competed with high affinity against [125I]-BQ3020 (KD = 40.8 +/- 6.6 pM) and [125I]-[Ala1,3,11,15]ET-1 (KD = 0.276 +/- 0.099 nM). Another selective ETB receptor compound, [Ala1,3,11,15]ET-1 also competed with high affinity against [125I]-BQ3020 (KD = 0.663 +/- 0.120 nM) and [125I]-[Ala1,3,11,15]ET-1 (KD = 0.643 +/- 0.124 nM). These results indicate that [125I]-BQ3020 and [125I]-[Ala1,3,11,15]ET-1 are selective ETB receptor radioligands. [Ala1,3,11,15]ET-1 competed with the non-selective radioligand [125I]-ET-1 in left ventricle and revealed the presence of ETA and ETB receptors in the proportions of 76:24% respectively in the human left ventricle.
