Abstract
Responsive or smart magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents are molecular sensors that alter the MRI signal upon changes in a particular parameter in their microenvironment. Consequently, they could be exploited for visualization of various biochemical events that take place at molecular and cellular levels. In this study, a set of dual-frequency calcium-responsive MRI agents are reported. These are paramagnetic, fluorine-containing complexes that produce remarkably high MRI signal changes at the 1H and 19F frequencies at varying Ca2+ concentrations. The nature of the processes triggered by Ca2+ was revealed, allowing a better understanding of these complex systems and their further improvement. The findings indicate that these double-frequency tracers hold great promise for development of novel functional MRI methods.
