Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  BCA Protein Assay
Description:  Inhibitory activity evaluation was performed by multi-screen (registered trademark) HTS 96-well plate (Millipore) using the cell membrane fraction stably expressing S1P1 obtained by the above operation. 25 μL of assay solution (50 mM Tris, 100 mM sodium chloride, 5 mM magnesium chloride, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT (dithiothreitol), 10 μM GDP (guanosine diphosphate) and 0.5% BSA (bovine serum albumin), pH 7.4), 25 μL of test compounds solution diluted by assay solution and 25 μL of the membrane fraction (0.2 μg protein/μL) were added to each well, and the mixture was gently shaken at room temperature: for 30 minutes. Then, 25 μL of 35S-GTP, and 25 μL of 50 nM S1P1 receptor selective agonist (1-[4-(4-phenyl-5-trifluoromethylthiophen-2-ylmethoxy)benzyl]azetidine-3-carboxylic acid, J. Med. Chem., 2004, vol. 47, pp. 6662-6665, compound 18) were added to each well, respectively, and it was reacted at room temperature for 60 minutes. After the reaction, a reaction solution of each well was suction-filtered. After suction filtration, ice-colded wash solution (50 mM Tris, 100 mM sodium chloride, 5 mL magnesium chloride and 1 mM EDTA, pH 7.4) was added to each well, and moreover filters were washed by suction filtration. This wash procedure was performed three times. A bottom of the plate containing the filters was dried at 60 C. After drying, 30 μL of MicroScinti-40 (PerkinElmer) was added to each well, and the radioactivity adsorbed on the filter was determined by TopCount NXT (registered trademark) (PerkinElmer) after shaking for 30 minutes at room temperature.
