Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  hURAT1 Inhibition Assay
Description:  Human embryonic kidney cells (HEK293) was incubated in DMEM tissue culture medium, at 37 C., under 5% CO2 and 95% air atmosphere. TransIT-293 transfection agent (MIRUS BIO, Cat. No. MIR2706) and model URAT1 were used to construct transfected HEK293 cells. Transfected HEK293/hURAT1 cells were used to the test for 14C-uric acid transport activity. HEK293/hURAT1 cells were seeded in a 96-well plate (BD, Cat. No. 356461) fully coating with poly-D-lysine at a density of 6104 cells per well. Cells were incubated at 37 C. for at least 12 hrs in the calorstat, and then washed with pre-heated washing buffer (125 mM sodium gluconate, 10 mM HEPES pH=7.4) at an amount of 200 μL per well to wash out the culture medium. The uric acid [8-14C] (ARC, Cat. No. ARC0513-250UCI) containing or not containing the compound was added to 50 μL HBSS buffer which was free of chloric ion each well (HBSS buffer: 125 mM sodium gluconate, 4.8 mM potassium gluconate, 1.3 mM calcium gluconate, 1.2 mM potassium dihydrogen phosphate, 1.2 mM magnesium sulfate, 5.6 mM glucose, 25 mM HEPES pH=7.4) to make the specific concentration of the uric acid 1 μCi per well. The incubating solution was removed after 10 mins incubation, followed by adding 100 μL cold washing buffer, after washing with this buffer for 3 times, the buffer was completely removed from the well. 50 μL Lysis buffer (0.1 mM NaOH) was added to each well, and transferred to a 96-well plate (PERKIN ELMER, Cat. No. 6005040) containing scintillation fluid after 5 mins, and counted by MicroBeta Trilux (PerkinElmer) to give IC50 value eventually.
