Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  LXR alpha/beta Radioligand Binding Assay
Description:  Compounds of the invention were assessed in a competition binding assay where different concentrations of compounds were incubated with the LXR ligand binding domain (LBD) in the presence of radiolabeled LXR ligand [3H]TO901317. The amount of the LXR-LBD that complexed with [3H]T0901317 was measured by scintillation proximity assay (SPA) employing non-specific binding of LXR-LBD to poly-lysine coated Yttrium silicate beads. Partially purified LXR α or β LBD protein (15-45 nM) was incubated at rt for 30 min with 15 nM [3H]TO901317 (25-40 Ci/mmol) and different concentrations of test compounds in 80 μL of phosphate buffered saline (PBS) buffer containing 2.5% DMSO, 1% glycerol, 2 mM EDTA, 2 mM CHAPS and 5 mM DTT in 96-well plates. Poly-lysine SPA beads (50 μg) were added to each well and the total volume was adjusted to 120 μL. The plates were shaken on an orbital shaker for 20 min and then allowed to settle for 10 more min at rt before a brief centrifugation at 2,000 rpm for 1 min. The SPA signal was measured on a MicroBetaŽ liquid scintillation counter (Perkin Elmer, Waltham, Mass.), and the results were used for calculating IC50 values based on the total binding (DMSO control) and non-specific binding (5 μM of unlabeled TO901317) controls. The Ki values were calculated according to equation 1, where [RL] is the final concentration of [3H]TO901317 in the assay, and the Kd values of 20 nM and 10 nM of TO901317 for LBDs of LXRα and LXRβ, respectively, were determined by direct titration of the radioligand with these proteins.
