Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  In Vitro ORL-1 Receptor Binding Assay
Description:  Radioligand binding assays (screening and dose-displacement) used 0.1 nM [3H]-nociceptin (NEN; 87.7 Ci/mmole) with 10-20 μg membrane protein in a final volume of 500 μL binding buffer (10 mM MgCl2, 1 mM EDTA, 5% DMSO, 50 mM HEPES, pH 7.4). Non-specific binding was determined in the presence of 10 nM unlabeled nociceptin (American Peptide Company). All reactions were performed in 96-deep well polypropylene plates for 1 h at about 25 C. Binding reactions were terminated by rapid filtration onto 96-well Unifilter GF/C filter plates (Packard) presoaked in 0.5% polyethylenimine (Sigma-Aldrich). Harvesting was performed using a 96-well tissue harvester (Packard) followed by three filtration washes with 500 μL ice-cold binding buffer. Filter plates were subsequently dried at 50 C. for 2-3 hours. Fifty μL/well scintillation cocktail (BetaScint; Wallac) was added and plates were counted in a Packard Top-Count for 1 min/well. The data from screening and dose-displacement experiments were analyzed using Microsoft Excel and the curve fitting functions in GraphPad PRISM, v. 3.0, respectively, or an in-house function for one-site competition curve-fitting.
