Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  BIOLOGICAL ASSAY
Description:  Affinity for histamine H1-receptor was determined by binding studies to H1 receptors. The sample used is a suspension of membranes of CHO cells transfected with the human H1 receptor (5 mg/ml, PerkinElmer), stored at −80 C. until use. After thawing, the membranes were homogenized in assay buffer (50 mM Na/K phosphate) prepared in purified water and kept at room temperature (pH 7.4). The assay was performed in 96-well microplates. In each well, 25 μl of buffer and 25 μl of vehicle (total binding) or 10 μM pyrilamine (nonspecific binding) or the products to be tested was added. Subsequently, 200 μl of the membrane suspension was added to all wells and the microtiter plate was preincubated at 25 C. for 15 min. After this time, 25 μl of 3H-pyrilamine (1.5 nM) was added and the reaction was allowed to incubate for 60 min at 25 C. Then, free radioligand was quickly separated from bound radioligand by vacuum filtration (Multiscreen microplate Screener), performing 10 washes with assay buffer (4 C.). Subsequently 45 μl of scintillation fluid was added to each well and after sealing of the microplate, the radioactivity was quantified in a liquid scintillation counter (TopCount). The graphs of the inhibition curves and calculation the IC50 value were generated with the GraphPad Prism program.
