Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Biological Assay
Description:  Receptor competition binding assays are run in a buffer made up of DPBS (1 L) (Hyclone #SH30028.03), 2.2 g BSA Fraction v (Roche #9048-46-8), 100 mL glycerol (Fischer #56-81-5) and 40 mL DMSO (reagent grade). The final wells contain 20 μg/mL aprotinin and 20 μg/mL leupeptin and 10 μM Pefabloc. Typically, receptor binding assays include radio-labeled ligands, such as 7 nM [3H]-25-hydroxycholesterol for alpha binding, 20 nM [3H]-3-[[4-[[3-(2,6-dichlorophenyl)-5-isopropyl-isoxazol-4-yl]methoxy]-N,2-dimethyl-anilino]methyl]benzoic acid for beta binding, and 6 nM [3H]-25-hydroxycholesterol for gamma binding, and 0.5 μg RORa receptor, 0.03 μg RORb receptor, or 0.13 μg RORg receptor per well. Assays are typically run in 96-well format. Competing test compounds are added at various concentrations ranging from about 0.4 nM to 25 μM. Non-specific binding is determined in the presence of 250 nM 25-hydroxycholesterol for RORa and RORg binding, 250 nM 3-[[4-[[3-(2,6-dichlorophenyl)-5-isopropyl-isoxazol-4-yl]methoxy]-N,2-dimethyl-anilino]methyl]benzoic acid for RORb binding. The sample, label and receptor solutions are combined in a 96 well assay plate (Costar 3632) and incubated overnight at room temperature, then 25 μl beads (Amersham YSi (2-5 micron) copper His-tag Spa Beads, #RPNQ0096) for a final bead concentration of 1 mg/well is added to each reaction. Plates are mixed for 30 minutes on an orbital shaker at room temperature. After an incubation of 4 hours, plates are read in a Wallac MICROBETAŽ counter.
