Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Binding Assay
Description:  Cell culture: 293 HEK cells, stably transfected with plasmids capable of expressing human P2X7 receptor, were cultured by standard methods. Cells were plated to cell density of approximately 15,000 cells/well in 384-well assay plates (50 μl/well) with 1.5% low serum media (DMEM, 1.5% BCS, 1% L-glut (2 mM), 1% P/S).293 HEK cells, stably transfected with plasmids capable of expressing rat or mouse P2X7 receptor, were cultured by standard methods. Cells were plated to cell density of approximately 15,000 cells/well in 384-well assay plates (50 μl/well) with 1.5% low serum media (DMEM, 1.5% FBS, 1% L-glut (2 mM), 10 mM HEPES, 1% P/S). Cells were plated 24 hours prior to assay. Cells expressing human, rat or mouse P2X7 receptor were assayed in the following manner.Fluorescent Imaging Plate Reader (FLIPR) assay: Briefly, 293-human or mouse P2X7 stable cells were incubated in sucrose buffer, pH 7.4 [KCl (5 mM), NaH2PO4.2H2O (9.6 mM), HEPES (25 mM), sucrose (280 mM), glucose (5 mM), CaCl2 (0.5 mM), and probenecid (0.1425 g in 3 mL 1N NaOH was added for 500 mL solution)] in 384-well plates.293-rat P2X7 stable cells were incubated in HHPB (pH 7.4) [consisting of Hank's BSS (1); HEPES (pH 7.4) (20 mM) (Sigma); probenecid (0.710 g/5 mL 1N NaOH) (Sigma); and BSA (0.05%) (Roche) which was added after the pH had been adjusted] in 384-well plates. Fluo-4 NW dye mix (Molecular Probes, Inc., Eugene, Oreg., USA) was prepared in buffer (see manufacturer's instructions). Cell plates were removed from the 37 C. incubator, the media discarded and then 30 μL of dye was added to each well. Plates were placed in the 37 C., non-CO2 incubator for 30 minutes and then room temperature for 30 minutes.
