Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  HTRF-Based Assay
Description:  Methods for V79-Human-CYP11B2 and V79-Human-CYP11B1 Assays: V79 cell lines stably expressing the either the human CYP11B2 or the human CYP11B1 enzyme were generated using a standard transfection protocol. V79 cells were transfected with plasmids pTriEx3-Hygro-hCyp11B2 or pTriEx3-Hygro-hCyp11B1 using Lipofectamine2000 reagent. V79 cells that stably express the human CYP11B2 or human CYP11B1 enzyme were selected for and maintained in DMEM supplemented with 10% FBS and 400 μg/mL hygromycin for 2 weeks. Single cell clones were generated by infinite dilution in DMEM supplemented with 10% FBS and 400 μg/mL hygromycin until single colonies were obtained. Clones V79-hCYP11B2-CLE9 and V79-hCYP11B1-8CLC7, were determined to produce the most aldosterone and cortisol, respectively, and were selected for inhibitor screening. For testing of inhibitors, cells were harvested at 80% confluency with 0.5% Trypsan-EDTA, washed once in PBS, and reconstituted in DMEM+0.1% BSA media at a cell concentration of 600,000 cells/mL for the CYP11B2 assay and 280,000 cells/mL for the CYP11B1 assay. 25 μL of cells were added to a 384 well tissue culture treated plate and mixed with 0.3 μL of inhibitor or DMSO (1% final DMSO concentration) for 1 hour at 37 C., 5% CO2. After pre-incubation with inhibitor, the reaction was initiated by adding 5 μL of substrate (final concentration of 125 nM 11-deoxycorticosterone for the CYP11B2 assay or 250 nM 11-deoxycortisol for the CYP11B1 assay). The reaction was carried out for 3 hours at 37 C., 5% CO2 and was stopped by harvesting the supernatants. The amount of product in the supernatant (aldosterone for CYP11B2 assay and cortisol for the CYP11B1 assay) was measured using HTRF-based assay kit (Aldosterone HTRF-CisBio#64ALDPEB, Cortisol HTRF-CisBio #63IDC002-CORT).
