Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  B-RAF (V600E) Kinase Assay
Description:  In a dilution series 10 uL/well of test substance solution are placed in a multiwell plate. The dilution series is selected so that generally a range of concentrations of 2 uM to 0.119 nM or 0.017 nM is covered. If necessary the initial concentration of 2 uM is changed to 50 uM, 10 uM or 0.4 uM or 0.2857 uM and further dilution is carried out accordingly. The final concentration of DMSO is 5%. 10 uL/well of the B-Raf (V600E)-kinase solution are pipetted in (containing 0.5 ng B-Raf (V600E)-kinase (e.g. from Upstate) in 20 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.5, 0.1 mM EDTA, 0.1 mM EGTA, 0.286 mM sodium orthovanadate, 10% glycerol, 1 mg/mL bovine serum albumin, 1 mM dithiothreitol) and the mixture is incubated for 1 h at RT under with shaking. The kinase reaction is started by the addition of 20 uL/well ATP solution [final concentration: 250 uM ATP, 30 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.5, 0.02% Brij, 0.2 mM sodium orthovanadate, 10 mM magnesium acetate, 0.1 mM EGTA, phosphatase cocktail (Sigma, #P2850, dilution recommended by the manufacturer)] and 10 uL/well MEK1 solution [containing 50 ng biotinylated MEK1 (prepared from purified MEK1 according to standard procedure, e.g. with EZ-Link Sulpho-NHS-LC-Biotin reagent, Pierce, #21335)] and carried out for 60 min at RT with constant shaking. The reaction is stopped by the addition of 12 uL/well of a 100 mM EDTA solution and incubation is continued for a further 5 min. 55 uL/well of the reaction solution are transferred into a streptavidin-coated plate (e.g. Streptawell HighBond, Roche, #11989685001) and shaken gently for 1 h at RT, in order to bind biotinylated MEK1 to the plate. After elimination of the liquid the plate is washed five times with 200 uL/well of 1├┐PBS and 100 uL/well solution of primary antibody plus europium-labelled secondary antibody [Anti Phospho-MEK (Ser217/221), Cell Signaling, #9121 and Eu-N1 labelled goat-anti-rabbit antibody, Perkin Elmer, #AD0105] is added, the primary antibody is diluted 1:2000 and the secondary antibody is diluted to 0.4-0.5 ug/mL in Delfia Assay Buffer (Perkin Elmer, #1244-111). After 1 h shaking at RT the solution is poured away and washed five times with 200 uL/well Delfia Wash Buffer (Perkin Elmer, #4010-0010/#1244-114). After the addition of 200 uL/well Enhancement Solution (Perkin Elmer, #4001-0010/#1244-105) the mixture is shaken for 10 min at RT and then measured in a Wallac Victor using the program "Delfia Time Resolved Fluorescence (Europium)". IC50 values are obtained from these dosage-activity curves using a software program (GraphPadPrizm).
