Abstract

A LDL particle functionalized with a GdDO3A-monoamide chelate with a long alkenyl anchor (GdDO3A-OA) was prepared for in vivo detection of atheroplaques. The GdDO3A-OA, when successfully intercalated into the lipid layer of LDL particles, led to a significant enhancement of magnetic resonance imaging signal intensity of atheroplaques in atherosclerosis mouse models.
