Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Homogeneous Time-Resolved Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (HTRF) Assay
Description:  Data Source: Data Source: Sanford-Burnham Center for Chemical Genomics (SBCCG) Source Affiliation: Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute Network: NIH Molecular Libraries Production Centers Network (MLPCN) Grant Number: 1 R03 MH085675-01 Assay Provider: Dr Ilya Bezprozvanny, UT Southwestern Medical Center , Dallas, TX Chronic pain (neuropathic pain, inflammatory pain, cancer pain) is a major health problem. Opiate-based drugs, such as morphine and morphine derivatives, are the primary standard of care for the treatment of chronic pain. Unfortunately, patients develop tolerance to opiates due to desensitization of the opiate receptor. Thus, alternative anti-nociceptive ("pain killing") pathways need to be explored for treatment of chronic pain. The N-type voltage-gated Ca2+ channels (CaV2.2s) in dorsal root ganglia neurons is a well validated target for chronic pain (1, 2). We previously demonstrated the interaction between CaV2.2 and the first PDZ domain of molecular
