Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  In Vitro c-Met Kinase Enzyme Assay
Description:  Compounds were screened in vitro for their ability to inhibit c-Met kinase activity. The IC50 values of compounds for the inhibition of c-Met kinase were determined as described in the literature with some modifications (Wang, X. et al, Mol. Cancer Ther. 2003, 2(11):1085-1092; Calic, M. et al., Croatica Chemical ACTA. 2005, 78(3):367-374). Briefly, histidine-tagged c-Met catalytic domain fusion protein (Invitrogen, #PV3143) was used for the assay. IC50 measurements were based on the degree of phosphorylation of poly Glu-Tyr (Sigma-Aldrich, #P0275) that was coated (0.01 mg/per well) on 96-well microplates (R&D systems, #DY990). The reaction was carried out in a 50 μL solution containing 50 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 10 mM MnCl2, 10 mM MgCl2, 0.5 mM DTT, 100 μM Na3VO4, 5 μM ATP (Cell Signaling Technology, #9804) and serial dilutions of individual compounds. The reaction lasted for 25 minutes at 30 C. After the reaction was completed, the contents of the plates was discarded. Plates were then washed with TBS-T (250 μL/well, 5) and then blocked with TBS-T containing 1% BSA for 2 hours. The contents of the plates was discarded, and 100 μL (per well) of peroxidase-labeled anti-phospho-tyrosine antibody (Sigma, #A5964) diluted (1:60,000) in 1% BSA containing TBS-T were then added and incubated for 1 hour. Plates were washed with TBS-T (250 mL/well, 5) and followed by the color reaction using 100 μL (1:1 mixture) of H2O2 and tetramethylbenzidine (R&D Systems, #DY999). The reaction was stopped in minutes with 100 μL of 2 N H2SO4. The optical density was measured immediately using a microplate reader at 450 nm with wavelength correction at 540 nm. IC50 values were calculated with the GraphPad Prism software. The linear range (i.e., the time period over which the rate remained equivalent to the initial rate) was determined for the kinase and IC50 determinations were performed within this range.
