Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  In Vitro Assay
Description:  A reliable 96-well plate D-amino acid oxidase (DAAO) assay was developed based on previously published reports (J. Biol. Chem. 277: 27782 (2002)). Briefly, D-serine (5 mM) was oxidatively deaminated by human recombinant D-amino acid oxidase in the presence of molecular oxygen and flavin adenosine dinucleotide (FAD, 1 μM), to yield the corresponding α-keto acid, ammonia and hydrogen peroxide. The resulting hydrogen peroxide was quantified using horseradish peroxidase (0.01 mg/mL) and o-phenylenediamine (180 μg/mL), which displays a defined yellow absorbance at 411 nm when it becomes oxidized. All reactions were carried out for 20 min at room temperature in a 100-μL volume in Tris buffer (50 mM, pH 8.5). Additionally, stock solutions and serial dilutions of potential DAO inhibitors were made in 10:90 DMSO:buffer with a final assay DMSO concentration of 1%.
