[11C](R,R)HAPT and its stereoisomer [11C](S,S)HAPT were developed for imaging vesicular acetylcholine transporters (VAChT), located in presynaptic cholinergic neurons in the brain. [11C](R,R)HAPT binding in the monkey brain was displaced by vesamicol, a specific VAChT antagonist, but not by SA4503, a sigma-1 agonist, suggesting the specificity of [11C](R,R)HAPT to VAChT.
