Cyclotides are natural microproteins found in plants with a head-to-tail circular Cys-knotted topology. This work reports the in vivo evaluation in mice of the MCoTI-based cyclotide, MCo-CVX-5c, for the development of imaging agents that target CXCR4. A [64Cu]-DOTA-labeled version of this cyclotide demonstrated high and significant uptake in U87-stb-CXCR4 tumors compared to the control U87 tumors. The cover art is by Isaac Mora. More information can be found in the Full Paper by Camarero, Nimmagadda et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201702540).
