Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Cathepsin S dose-response confirmation
Description:  Screening Center: Penn Center for Molecular Discovery Center Affiliation: University of Pennsylvania Network: Molecular Library Screening Center Network (MLSCN) Assay Provider: Scott Diamond, University of Pennsylvania Grant number: MH076406-01 Human cathepsin S (EC 3.4.22.27) is a lysosomal cysteine protease that is expressed in antigen-presenting cells, especially dendritic cells, B-cells and macrophages. Cathepsin S plays a key role in the processing of antigenic peptides for presentation by MHC Class II molecules on the surface of antigen-presenting cells. Thus inhibitors of cathepsin S may be immunomodulators effective in the treatment of autoimmune diseases. A high-throughput screen for cathepsin S inhibitors was designed as an end-point assay monitoring the release of the fluorophore aminomethyl coumarin (AMC) upon enzymatic hydrolysis of an AMC-labeled dipeptide. Primary HTS results have been reported previously (AID 501). Compounds identified as hits in HTS of mixtures of 1
