Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Dose Response Assays for S1P1 Agonists and Agonism Potentiators - Potentiator Assay 60K MLSMR
Description:  Source (MLSCN Center Name): The Scripps Research Institute Molecular Screening Center Center Affiliation: The Scripps Research Institute, TSRI Assay Provider: The Scripps Research Institute, TSRI Network: Molecular Library Screening Center Network (MLSCN) Grant Proposal Number: 1 R03 MH076533-01 The biology of S1P receptor subtypes Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) influences heart rate (1,2), coronary artery caliber, endothelial integrity, lung epithelial integrity (3) and lymphocyte recirculation (1,4-6) through five related high affinity G-protein coupled receptors (7). Inhibition of lymphocyte recirculation by nonselective S1P receptor agonists produce clinical immunosuppression preventing transplant rejection, but is associated with transient bradycardia. Understanding the contribution of individual receptors has been limited by the unavailability of selective agonists or antagonists for the 5 receptor subtypes. Separation of receptor subtype usage for control of endothelial and
