Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Radioligand Binding Assay
Description:  For binding analysis vs. the human receptor, samples were incubated in 50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.5, 5 mM MgCl2, 1 mM EDTA (4% DMSO final) with 10 nM [N-methyl-3H]-LSD (Perkin Elmer), 2.5 ng of human 5-HT6 receptor membranes (Millipore) and 50 ug SPA beads (PVT-PEI-WGA, GE Healthcare) per well in a final volume of 0.2 mL. For binding analysis vs. the rat receptor, samples were incubated in the same buffer with 3.5 nM [N-methyl-3H]-LSD, 50 ug of rat 5-HT6 receptor membranes (Perkin Elmer) and 0.4 mg SPA beads (PVT-PEI-WGA Type B, GE Healthcare) per well also in a final volume of 0.2 mL. Binding reactions were performed in PicoPlate96 microtiter plates (Perkin Elmer) by consecutively adding 50 uL of each competing compound or buffer, SPA beads, radioligand and 5-HT6 receptor membranes. After an overnight incubation at room temperature on a Nutator mixer, plates were centrifuged for 15 min at 1,500 rpm, followed by incubation in the dark for 10 min.
