Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Cellular In Vitro Assay
Description:  On the day before the assay, the cells are plated out in culture medium (DMEM, 10% FCS, 2 mM glutamine, 10 mM HEPES) in 384-well microtiter plates and kept in a cell incubator (96% humidity, 5% v/v CO2, 37 C.). On the day of the assay, the culture medium is replaced by a Tyrode solution (140 mM NaCl, 5 mM KCl, 1 mM MgCl2, 2 mM CaCl2, 20 mM glucose, 20 mM HEPES), which additionally contains the cofactor coelenterazine (50 μM), and the microtiter plate is then incubated for a further 3-4 hours. The test substances in various concentrations are placed for 10 to 20 minutes in the wells of the microtiter plate before the agonist [Arg8]-vasopressin is added, and the resulting light signal is measured immediately in the luminometer.
