Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  IMAP Technology
Description:  The kinase activity of IRAK4 is determined by its ability to catalyze the phosphorylation of a fluorescent polypeptide substrate. The extent of phosphorylation is measured using IMAP technology (Molecular Devices) where the phosphorylated fluorescent substrate binds to the large M(III)-based nanoparticles which reduces the rotational speed of the substrate and thus increases its fluorescent polarization (FP).Specific compounds of the instant invention were tested in the assay described above and were found to have IC50 values of ≦20 μM against substrate.Procedure: A 20 μl reaction mixture contains 10 mM TriHCl, pH 7.2, 0.5 nM GST tagged IRAK4 (SignalChem), 100 nM fluorescent peptide substrate (RP7030, Molecular Devices), 100 μM ATP, 1 mM DTT, 1 mM MgCl2, and 0.01% Tween 20. The reaction is initiated by the addition of ATP. After incubation for 30 minutes at 25 C., 60 μl of Progressive IMAP Reagent (Molecular Devices) is added to stop the reaction. Change in RP7030's FP is determined by a FP reader (Analyst HT, LJL BioSystems).
