Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Cell-Based Assay
Description:  A stable CHO cell line expressing recombinant human 5-HT4 receptor and pCRE-Luc reporter system was used for cell-based assay. The assay offers a non-radioactive based approach to determine binding of a compound to GPCRs. In this specific assay, the level of intracellular cyclic AMP which is modulated by activation or inhibition of the receptor is measured. The recombinant cells harbor luciferase reporter gene under the control of cAMP response element.The above cells were grown in 96 well clear bottom white plates in Hams F12 medium containing 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS). Prior to the addition of compounds or standard agonist, cells were serum starved overnight. Increasing concentrations of test compounds were added in OptiMEM medium to the cells. The incubation was continued at 37 C. in CO2 incubator for 4 hours. Medium was removed and cells were washed with phosphate buffered saline.
