Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  PPARgamma Agonist Activity
Description:  Agonist activity of the enantiomers of 5-({p-[2-(5-ethyl-2-pyridyl)ethoxy]phenyl}methyl)-(5-2H)-1,3-thiazolidine-2,4-dione at the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) was evaluated in the thyroid receptor-associated protein complex, 220 kDa component (TRAP220) PPARγ coactivator recruitment assay performed at Cerep (France). Briefly, a mixture of labeled PPARγ and tagged TRAP220 coactivator was pre-incubated at room temperature for 30 minutes in the presence of a PPARγ-targeted fluorescence acceptor and test compound. A TRAP220-targeted fluorescence donor was then added and the mixture was incubated for 120 minutes at room temperature. Next, the fluorescence signal was measured and results expressed as a percent of control (10 μM rosiglitazone). A dose response curve was generated for each enantiomer and the experimental data was analyzed using the log(agonist) vs. response (three parameters) non-linear model in GraphPad Prism 6.0 (GraphPad Software, Inc., La Jolla, Calif.), with a fixed Hillslope of 1.
