Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Enzyme Assay
Description:  The inhibitory properties of compounds relative to MEK1 or MEK2 may be determined using a black 384-well-plate format under the following reaction conditions: 50 mM HEPES pH 7.3, 10 mM NaCl, 10 mM MgCl2, 0.01% Brij35, 1 nM MEK1 or 4 nM MEK2, 25 nM ERK1, 400 μM ATP, 500 nM IPTTPITTYFFFK-5FAM-COOH (FI-Erktide), and 1% DMSO. Reaction product is determined quantitatively by fluorescent polarization using progressive IMAP beads from Molecular Devices. The assay reaction may be initiated as follows: 2 μl of the mixture of 1.5 μM FI-Erktide and 75 nM ERK with 2 μl of inhibitor (2 fold serial dilutions for 11 data points for each inhibitor) containing 3% DMSO were added to each well of the plate, followed by the addition of 2 μl of the mixture of 3 nM MEK1 or 12 nM MEK2 and 1200 μM ATP to initiate the reaction (final enzyme concentration was 1 nM for MEK1 or 4 nM for MEK2). The reaction mixture may then be incubated at room temperature for 22 min, and quenched and developed by addition of 20 μl of 1:200 dilution of progressive IMAP beads (Molecular Devices) in 80% buffer A, 20% bufferB and 0.003% Tween 20. Fluorescence polarization of the resulting reaction mixtures may be measured after a 1 hour incubation at room temperature.
