Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Biological Activity
Description:  Endothelial lipase (EL) and hepatic lipase (HL) activities were measured using a fluorescent substrate, A10070, (Invitrogen, CA) doped into an artificial vesicle containing DMPG (Avanti Polar Lipids) as the excipient. Vesicles were prepared by combining 571 μL of 29 mM DMPG in a 1:1 mixture of MeOH and CHCl3 with 2000 μL of 1 mM A10070 in a 1:1 mixture of MeOH and CHCl3. The mixture was dried under nitrogen in multiple vials then resuspended in 20 mL total volume of 50 mM HEPES pH 8.0 buffer containing 50 mM NaCl and 0.2 mM EDTA. The sample was allowed to sit at room temperature for 15 min and then was sonicated 34 mins on ice with a Branson Sonicator using duty cycle 1. This preparation provides vesicles with a mole fraction of 0.11 for the FRET substrate.The enzymatic assay was measured using 384-well white Optiplates. Each well contained 20 μL of assay buffer (50 mM HEPES pH 8.0, 50 mM NaCl and 1 mM CaCl2) and 0.25 μL of a DMSO solution containing a compound of interest. EL or HL (10 μL) was added and allowed to incubate with the compound for 30 min at 37 C. The source of EL was conditioned media obtained from HT-1080 cells that were transformed using RAGE technology (Athersys) to overexpress endogenous EL, and HL was partially purified from conditioned media obtained from COS cells overexpressing HL. The reaction was started by the addition of 10 μL of a 1:10 dilution of vesicles. The final total reaction volume was 20.25 μL. The reaction rates were measured on a Gemini plate reader with an excitation wavelength of 490 nm and an emission wavelength of 530 nm. Readings were taken over a period of 60 minutes, and the slope between 300 and 900 secs of the readout was used to calculate the rate of the reaction.
