Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Assay for Binding Affinity for Adenosine Receptor A3
Description:  HEK-293 cell membrane homogenates (32 μg protein), in which A3 adenosine receptors were expressed, are incubated for 120 min at 22 C. with 0.15 nM [1251]AB-MECA in the absence or presence of the test compound in a buffer containing 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.4), 5 mM MgCl2, 1 mM EDTA and 2 UI/ml ADA. Nonspecific binding is determined in the presence of 1 μM IB-MECA. Following incubation, the samples are filtered rapidly under vacuum through glass fiber filters (GF/B, Packard) presoaked with 0.3% PEI and rinsed several times with ice-cold 50 mM Tris-HCl using a 96-sample cell harvester (Unifilter, Packard). The filters are dried then counted for radioactivity in a scintillation counter (Topcount, Packard) using a scintillation cocktail (Microscint 0, Packard). The results are expressed as a percent inhibition of the control radioligand specific binding. The standard reference compound is IB-MECA, which is tested in each experiment at several concentrations to obtain a competition curve from which its IC50 is calculated.
