99mtc gp - a technetium tc 99m radiopharmaceutical of a glutamate rich peptide (gp) conjugated, via carbodiimide linker, to the heparin like polysaccharide chitosan (ch) in a 1:1 ratio, with potential tumor targeting property. Upon administration, 99m tc glycopeptide targets and is taken up by glutamate specific transporters on tumor cells. Upon internalization, the tc99m moiety can be visualized upon scanning. Gp may potentially be used as a drug carrier for antineoplastic drug delivery to tumor cells.
