Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  cAMP Accumulation Assay
Description:  Inhibition of cAMP accumulation by select compounds was measured in forskolin-stimulated CHO-K1 cells stably expressing KOR. CHO-K1 cells stably expressing KOR were harvested using Invitrogen Cell Dissociation Buffer, and then centrifuged at 1200 rpm for five minutes. The supernatant was aspirated and cells were resuspended in assay buffer to a density of 4105 cells/mL. 25 μL of cells were added into a white half-area 96 well plate. Fourteen point serial dilutions of test compounds were carried out in assay buffer (PBS with 0.5 mM IBMX). Ketazocine was used as a positive control for each assay. 12.5 μL of compound was added to the cells in duplicate for each test concentration. The cells were then stimulated with 12.5 μL forskolin at a final concentration 20 μM. Cells were incubated for 45 minutes in a 37 C., 5% CO2 water jacketed incubator. CisBio HTRF cAMP assay reagent was used for cAMP quantitation. Two hours after substrate addition, signal at 665/615 nm was measured using the Perkin Elmer Victor X4 HTRF reader. Data analysis was done using GraphPad Prism, sigmoidal dose-response (variable slope) curve fitting.
