The aim of this study is to examine biological behaviour of radiolabeled guanine with [Tc(CO)3]+ core in vitro and in vivo. In vitro biological behavior of 99mTc(CO)3–Gua was evaluated on Lung (A-549), Breast (MCF-7), Colonic (Caco) carcinoma cell lines and normal human bronchial epithelial
(NHBE). 99mTc(CO)3–Gua compound showed high uptake on A-549 cell line when compared to NHBE cell line. Biodistribution characteristics of 99mTc(CO)3–Gua was evaluated using New Zeland Rabbits. Scintigraphic results showed that a high level of radioactivity was observed
in the lungs and liver shortly after administration of the 99mTc(CO)3–Gua and excretion takes place via both renal and hepatobiliary route. It was concluded that 99mTc(CO)3–Gua could be used as a nucleotide radiopharmaceutical for imaging purposes.
