Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Cytostar-T Assay
Description:  In detail, SK-N-MC cells are seeded into 96-well Cytostar-T assay plates at a density of 200,000 cells/well and grown for 16-18 hours to confluence in growth medium as recommended by ATCC. Before starting the assay, cells are washed once with HBSS (Hank's buffered salt solution; Sigma, H8264) cont. 5 mM alanine (referred in here as HBSS/Ala) and afterwards the following reagents are added: 1.80 ul/well HBSS/A1a 2. 20 ul/well of HBSS/A1a containing 6x the concentration of compound in 6% DMSO 3. approx. 5-10 min incubation 4. 20 ul/well 3 uM glycine (3H-glycine (Perkin Elmer, NET004001MC, specific activity: 52 Ci/mmol; diluted 1:1 with unlabelled glycine) in HBSS/A1a. In the final assay, glycine concentration is 500 nM (250 nM derived from the 3H-glycine Perkin Elmer, 250 nM unlabelled glycine), DMSO concentration is 1%. The assay plate is immediately after addition of the 3H-glycine placed into a Micro-Beta Counter (Perkin Elmer) and the signal is recorded over 60 min.
