Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Opioid Receptor Binding Assay
Description:  The Ki (binding affinity) for opioid receptors was determined using a competitive displacement assay as previously described in Neumeyer (Journal of Med. Chem. 2012, p 3878), which is incorporated herein in its entirety. Briefly, membrane protein from CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovarian) cells that stably expressed the cloned human μ opioid receptor were incubated with 12 different concentrations of the compound set forth herein in the presence of 0.25 nM [3H]DAMGO (see Tiberi et al., Can. J. Physiol. Pharmacol. 1988, Vol. 66, p 1368, which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety) in a final volume of 1 mL of 50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.5 at 25 C. Incubation times of 60 min were used for [3H]DAMGO (see Gulati et al., Life Sci. 1990, Vol. 47, p 159, which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety). Nonspecific binding was measured by inclusion of 10 μM naloxone. The binding was terminated by filtering the samples through Schleicher & Schuell No. 32 glass fiber filters using a Brandel 48-well cell harvester. The filters were subsequently washed three times with 3 mL of cold 50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.5, and were counted in 2 mL Ecoscint A scintillation fluid. IC50 values were calculated by least squares fit to a logarithm-probit analysis. Ki values of unlabelled compounds were calculated from the equation Ki=(IC50)/1+S where S=(concentration of radioligand)/(Kd of radioligand) (Cheng and Prusoff, 1973).
