Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  BRD4 AlphaScreen Assay
Description:  BRD4-BD1 and BRD4-BD2 assays were conducted in white 384-well polystyrene plate in a final volume of 20 μL for BD1 and 40 μL for BD2. Inhibitors were first serially diluted in DMSO and added to the plate wells before the addition of other reaction components. The final concentration of DMSO in the assay was 1.25% (BD1) and 0.83% (BD2). The assays were carried out at room temperature for 75 min. in the assay buffer (50 mM HEPES, pH 7.4, 100 mM NaCl, 0.05% CHAPS, 0.01% BSA), containing 50 nM Biotin-labeled tetra-acetylated histone H4 peptide (H4Ac4), 3.8 nM (BRD4-BD1, BPS Bioscience #31040) or 20 nM (BRD4-BD2, BPS Bioscience #31041). The reaction followed by the addition of 20 μL of assay buffer supplemented with Streptavidin donor beads (PerkinElmer 6760002) and GSH Acceptor beads (PerkinElmer-AL109C) at 4 g/mL under reduced light. After plate sealing, the plate was incubated in the dark at room temperature for 75 min. before reading on a PHERAstar FS plate reader (BMG Labtech). IC50 determination was performed by fitting the curve of percent control activity versus the log of the inhibitor concentration using the GraphPad Prism 5.0 software.
