Abstract  

The present study was undertaken to determine the structure of67Ga-binding acid mucopolysaccharide in tumor tissues. It was determined from measuring neutral saccharide in the structure that the principal67Ga-binding acid mucopolysaccharide in the tumor was keratan sulfate and/or keratan polysulfate. On the other hand, it was clarified from the results of mucopolysaccharase treatment that the main67Ga-binding acid mucopolysaccharide in tumor was not keratan sulfate, heparan sulfate, heparin, nor chondroitin sulfate A, B, or C. Based on the present results, it was deduced that the main67Ga-binding acid mucopolysaccharide in tumor is keratan polysulfate and that this acid mucopolysaccharide plays the most important role in tumor accumuation of67Ga.
