Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Fluorescence Polarization Assay
Description:  The fluorescence polarization assay for cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases was performed using an IMAP® FP kit supplied by Molecular Devices, Sunnyvale, Calif. (product # R8139). IMAP® technology has been applied previously to phosphodiesterase assays (Huang, W., et al., J. Biomol Screen, 2002, 7: 215). Assays were performed at room temperature in 384-well microtiter plates with an incubation volume of 20.2 μL. Solutions of test compounds were prepared in DMSO and serially diluted with DMSO to yield 8 μL of each of 10 solutions differing by 3-fold in concentration, at 32 serial dilutions per plate. 100% inhibition is determined using a known PDE10 inhibitor, which can be any compound that is present at 5,000 times its Ki value in the assay described as follows, such as papaverine (see Siuciak, et al. Neuropharmacology (2006) 51:386-396; Becker, et al. Behav Brain Res (2008) 186(2):155-60; Threlfell, et al., J Pharmacol Exp Ther (2009) 328(3):785-795), 2-{4-[pyridin-4-yl-1-(2,2,2-trifluoroethyl)-1H-pyrazol-3-yl]phenoxymethyl}quinoline succinic acid or 2-[4-(1-methyl-4-pyridin-4-yl-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)-phenoxymethyl]quinoline succinic acid (see Schmidt, et al. J Pharmacol Exp Ther (2008) 325:681-690; Threlfell, et al., J Pharmacol Exp Ther (2009) 328(3): 785-795). 0% of inhibition is determined by using DMSO (1% final concentrations). A Labcyte Echo 555 (Labcyte, Sunnyvale, Calif.) is used to dispense 200 mL from each well of the titration plate to the 384 well assay plate. A solution of enzyme (1/7000 dilution from aliquots; sufficient to produce 20% substrate conversion) and a separate solution of FAM-labeled cAMP PDE from Molecular Devices (product # R7506), at a final concentration of 50 nM are made in the assay buffer (10 mM Tris HCl, pH 7.2, 10 mM MgCl2, 0.05% NaN3 0.01% Tween-20, and 1 mM DTT). The enzyme is added to the assay plates by the addition of 10 μL of enzyme solution to each well, shaken to mix and incubated at room temperature for 60 minutes. The substrate is then added to the assay plates by the addition of 10 μμL of substrate solution to each well, shaken to mix, and incubated at room temperature for 60 minutes. A binding solution is then made from the kit components, comprised of 80% Solution A, 20% Solution B and binding reagent at a volume of 1/600 the total binding solution. The enzymatic reaction is stopped by addition of 60 lit of the binding solution to each well of the assay plates and the plates are sealed and shaken for 10 seconds. The plate was incubated at room temperature for at least one hour prior to determining the fluorescence polarization (FP).
