Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Radioligand Binding
Description:  HEK-293 cells stably expressing rat TAAR1 were maintained at 37 C. and 5% CO2 in DMEM high glucose medium, containing fetal calf serum (10%, heat inactivated for 30 min at 56 C.), penicillin/streptomycin (1%), and 375 ug/ml geneticin (Gibco). Cells were released from culture flasks using trypsin/EDTA, harvested, washed twice with ice-cold PBS (without Ca2+ and Mg2+), pelleted at 1,000 rpm for 5 min at 4 C., frozen and stored at --80 C. Frozen pellets were suspended in 20 ml HEPES-NaOH (20 mM, pH 7.4) containing 10 mM EDTA and homogenized with a Polytron (PT 6000, Kinematica) at 14,000 rpm for 20 s. The homogenate was centrifuged at 48,000xg for 30 min at 4 C. Subsequently, the supernatant was removed and discarded, and the pellet resuspended in 20 ml HEPES-NaOH (20 mM, pH 7.4) containing 0.1 mM EDTA using the Polytron (20 s at 14,000 rpm). This procedure was repeated and the final pellet resuspended in HEPES-NaOH containing 0.1 mM EDTA.
