Phage display technique is a powerful approach for discovering new tumor-and organ-targeting ligands,and radiolabeled phage has a potential to analyze the phage-binding sensitivity and specific imaging.In this study,phage Ⅱ (the spleen-targeting phage) in mice was isolated after three rounds biopanning,and labeled by 99mTc using mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3) as chelator to evaluate their binding properties in vivo.The amount of phage Ⅱ eluted from spleen was enriched by plague assay each round.99mTc-MAG3-phage Ⅱ showed the less retention in blood at any time point than half that of 99mTc-MAG3-phage Ⅰ (the radiolabeled original Ph.D-12 phage as control).The accumulation in spleen between 99mTc-MAG3-phage Ⅰ and Ⅱ was of different tendency.The highest uptake of 99mTc-MAG3-phage Ⅱ in spleen was 24.80 %ID/g at 30 min; and of 99mTc-MAG3-phage I,30.93% ID/g at 5 min.After circulating 99mTc-MAG3-phage Ⅱ for 120 min,its accumulation in spleen decreased though higher than that of 99mTc-MAG3-phage Ⅰ.In other organs,the 99mTc-MAG3-phage Ⅱ showed low retention and high spleen-to-organ or tissue ratios.In conclusion,the radiolabeled phage Ⅱ is convenient for studying the binding and specificity of spleen-targeting peptides found via phage display in vivo.
