We have prepared a radioiodinated ligand which binds with high affinity to the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (m-AChR). A derivative of 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate, [125I] labeled (R) 1-aza-bicyclo(2.2.2)oct-3-yl (R,S)-alpha-hydroxy-alpha-(4-[125I]iodophenyl)phenyl acetate (4- IQNB ) exhibits an affinity for the m-AChR from corpus striatum higher than that of (R) [3H] QNB. Additionally, [125I] 4- IQNB exhibits receptor selectivity for the M1 receptor since the affinity for the receptor from dog and rat heart is lower than that using dog or rat corpus striatum.
