Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  TNF or CD40L-Induced HEK-Blue Assay
Description:  Test compounds serially diluted in DMSO were plated in an assay plate (Labcyte, Cat. #LP-0200) at final concentrations ranging from 0.004 μM to 25 μM. TNFα (final concentration 0.5 ng/ml) or CD40L (final concentration 30 ng/ml) in assay buffer [DMEM, 4.5 g/l glucose (Gibco, Cat. 21063-029), 10% FBS (Sigma, F4135), 1% Penicillin-Streptomycin (Gibco, Cat. 15140-122), 1% Anti-Anti (Gibco, Cat. 15240-112) and 2 mM L-glutamine (Gibco, Cat. 25030-081)] was then added to the assay plate. After a 30 minute pre-incubation at 37 C. and 5% CO2, HEK-Blue-CD40L cells (InvivoGen, Cat. Code hkb-cd40) containing a NF-κB-driven secreted alkaline phosphatase reporter gene were seeded into the assay plate at a density of 20,000 cells per well. This plate was then incubated for 18 h at 37 C. and 5% CO2. Secreted alkaline phosphatase expression was measured using QUANTI-Blue (InvivoGen, Cat. Code rep-qbl) according to manufacturer's specifications and the assay plate was read on a PerkinElmer Envision at 620 nm. Inhibition data for the test compound over a range of concentrations was plotted as percentage inhibition of the test compound (100%=maximum inhibition). IC50 values were determined after correcting for background [(sample read−mean of low control)/(mean of high control−mean of low control)] where by the low control is DMSO without stimulation and high control is DMSO with stimulation. The IC50 is defined as the concentration of test compound which produces 50% inhibition and was quantified using the 4 parameter logistic equation to fit the data.
