Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  uHTS identification of compounds activating TNAP in the absence of phosphate acceptor performed in luminescent assay
Description:  Data Source: Sanford-Burnham Center for Chemical Genomics (SBCCG) Source Affiliation: Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego, CA) Network: NIH Molecular Libraries Screening Centers Network (MLSCN) Grant Proposal Number: 1R03 MH082385-01 Alkaline phosphatases (EC 3.1.3.1) (APs) catalyze the hydrolysis of phosphomonoesters, releasing phosphate and alcohol. APs are dimeric enzymes found in the most organisms. In human, four isozymes of APs have been identified. Three isozymes are tissue-specific and the fourth one is tissue-non specific, named TNAP. TNAP deficiency is associated with defective bone mineralization in the form of rickets and osteomalacia. Therefore, there is therapeutic potential of modulating TNAP activity. The goal of this HTS is to identify novel and specific activators of TNAP. The only known to date class of alkaline phosphatases activators are amino-containing alcohols, such as diethanolamine (DEA), that act as phosphoacceptor substrate and exh
