Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  GAL4-RORgamma Transactivation
Description:  The RORγ transactivation model was developed from the line HG5LN, which is a HeLa line that stably expresses a luciferase reporter gene controlled by a pentamer of the GAL4 recognition domain of yeast and of a β-globin promoter. The HG5LN line was stably transfected by the DNA-binding domain (DBD) of GAL4 fused to the ROR gamma ligand-binding domain (LBD). Molecules that inhibit the ROR gamma constitutive activity reduce the luciferase expression, thus leading to a reduction in the emitted luminescence.The cells are seeded in 384-well plates (5000 cells in 45 μL/well of culture medium containing 10% fetal calf serum) and incubated for 4 hours at 37° C., 5% CO2. 5 μL of the test molecules (compounds described in the tables described above) are then added to each well and the plates are incubated for 18 hours at a temperature of 37° C. under 5% of CO2. 20 μL of luciferase substrate (Promega) are added to each well and the luminescence emitted is read by a microplate reader.The luminescence units (“RLU”) are normalized by positive controls (“POS” containing a saturated concentration of benzenesulfonamide, N-(2,2,2-trifluoroethyl)-N-[4-[2,2,2-trifluoro-1-hydroxy-1-(trifluoromethyl)ethyl]phenyl]) and negative controls (“NEG” containing DMSO): % inhibition=((RLU−NEG)*100)/(POS−NEG). The IC50 values are calculated from a 4-parameter logistic model using the XLFit software (IDBS).
