Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  In Vitro Inhibition Assay
Description:  The Invitrogen (Carlsbad, Calif.) mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) Lanthascreen assay can be used to quantitate mTOR kinase activity in an in vitro setting. Active mTOR phosphorylates eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E binding protein 1 (4E-BP1) on residue threonine 46. This phosphorylation event can be detected with a phospho-specific terbium (Tb) labeled Ab, in turn bringing the Tb label in close proximity to the GFP tagged 4E-BP1 and allowing for time-resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer (TR-FRET), which correlates 4E-BP1 phosphorylation levels with mTOR kinase activity.
