While this appears ideal for a radiopharmaceutical, the kinetics of binding is a more critical consideration for oligonucleotides in vivo. For antisense, the binding is a multistep process induced by recognition of a nucleation site followed by hybridization, similar to a zipper mechanism. The hybridization rates of antisense oligonucleotides are low (Freier 1993) and depend on the secondary structure of the target (Monia et al. 1992). Concerning aptamers, it is not clear whether molecular recognition is achieved by the folding of an initially unstructured RNA around its target, or if the processes of RNA folding and binding are uncoupled like in typical proteinligand complexes (Sussman et al.

Structural formula for: (a) SS-14; (b) octreotide; (c) [123I]-[3iodo-Tyr3]-octreotide; (d) DTPA-octreotide Radiolabeled Peptides in Nuclear Oncology 45 see Sect. 3), whose receptors are overexpressed in many neoplastic tissues. Five human SS receptor subtypes have been identified and cloned (Reisine and Bell 1995). A new development to visualize tumors through peptide receptor targeting began about fifteen years ago when radiolabeled SS analogs were introduced into nuclear medicine for in vivo imaging of human tumors using a gamma camera.
