Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  [125I]DOI Radioligand Binding Assay
Description:  Radioligand binding assays for human 5-HT2A serotonin receptor were conducted using the 5-HT2 agonist [125I]DOI as radioligand. To define nonspecific binding, 10 μM DOI was used for all assays. For competitive binding studies, 0.5 nM [125I]DOI was used and compounds were assayed over a range of 0.01 nM to 10 μM. Assays were conducted in a total volume of 200 μl in 96-well Perkin Elmer GF/C filter plates in assay buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.4, 0.5 mM EDTA, 5 mM MgCl2 and 10 μM pargyline). Assay incubations were performed for 60 min at room temperature and were terminated by rapid filtration under reduced pressure of the reaction mixture over Whatman GF/C glass fiber filters presoaked in 0.5% PEI using a Brandell cell harvester. Filters were then washed several times with ice-cold wash buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.4). Plates were then dried at room temperature and counted in a Wallac MicroBeta scintillation counter.
