Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Biochemical Assay
Description:  Compound IC50 values are determined in a fluorescent hENPP2 (UniProtKB/SwissProt Sequence ref Q13822) biochemical assay using the fluorogenic autotaxin substrate FS-3 as substrate. FS-3 is a doubly labeled analog of LPC wherein the fluorophore is quenched through intramolecular energy transfer. Without hENPP2, the emission of the probe is quenched. If the substrate is hydrolyzed by hENPP2, the emission of the probe is not quenched anymore resulting in a fluorescence increase. Inhibition of hENPP2 by compounds will result in a decrease of the signal. 10 uL of a dilution series of compound, starting from 20 uM highest concentration, dilution, is added to the wells. hENPP2 is used at a final concentration of 0.4 ug/mL or 0.64 ug/mL (it will be appreciated by the skilled person that the potency read out is independent of the enzyme concentration). The enzyme is diluted in 50 mM Tris-HCl pH 8.0, 250 mM NaCl, 5 mM KCl, 1 mM MgCl2, 1 mM CaCl2, 0.1% fatty acid free BSA in a total volume of 20 uL. Enzyme mixture is added to compounds and the resulting mixture is incubated for 30 min at room temperature under shaking. The reaction is started by the addition of 20 uL of 0.75 uM FS-3 diluted in the same buffer as described above and the mixture is incubated at 30° C. for 30 min. Fluorescence is read on the Envision (Excitation 485 nm, emission 520 nM).
