Estrone has been converted to an aminopyrimidino [17,16-e]-annelated estrane derivative. A number of amino acids dipeptides and tripeptides have been linked to the aminopyrimidino unit of the annelated steroid. The tripeptide motifs may be used for the complexation of metals, such as of technetium as a radio label for the potential detection of estrogen positive breast cancer cells.
