[125I]2'-Iododiazepam (IDZ) was prepared and its application in a benzodiazepine receptor binding assay was studied. [125I]2'-IDZ binds to the rat cortical membrane with a high affinity (Kd, 0.66 nM). Various benzodiazepines showed competition with [125I]2'-IDZ for the binding sites in the rat cortical membrane, and the specificity of its binding correlated well with that of [3H]diazepam (r=0.992, p<0.001). These findings suggested that [125I]2'-IDZ binds to the same sites as [3H]diazepam and indicated that [125I]2'-IDZ can be used in a benzodiazepine receptor assay.
