Synthesis of a novel HER2 targeted aza-BODIPY–antibody conjugate: synthesis, photophysical characterisation and in vitro evaluation

Author affiliations

Abstract

We herein report the synthesis and analysis of a novel aza-BODIPY–antibody conjugate, formed by controlled and regioselective bioconjugation methodology. Employing the clinically relevant antibody, which targets HER2 positive cancers, represents an excellent example of an antibody targeting strategy for this class of near-IR emitting fluorophore. The NIR fluorescence and binding properties were validated through in vitro studies using live cell confocal imaging.
