Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  In Vitro Enzyme Inhibition Assay
Description:  Determination of the IC50 for the heterocyclic derivative BRD4 inhibitors disclosed herein was performed as follows. His-tagged BRD4 was cloned, expressed and purified to homogeneity. BRD4 binding and inhibition was assessed by monitoring the interaction of biotinylated H4-tetraacetyl peptide (AnaSpec, H4K5/8/12/16(Ac), biotin-labeled) with the target using the AlphaScreen technology (Life Technologies). In a 384-well ProxiPlate BRD4(BD1) (2 nM final) was combined with peptide (15 nM final) in 50 mM HEPES (pH 7.3), 10 mM NaCl, 0.25 mM TCEP, 0.1% (w/v) BSA, and 0.005% (w/v) Brij-35 either in the presence of DMSO (final 0.4% DMSO) or compound dilution series in DMSO. After 20 min incubation at room temp, Alpha streptavidin donor beads and Nickel Chelate acceptor beads were added to a final concentration of 5 μg/mL. After 2 hr of equilibration, plates were read on an Envision instrument and the IC50 was calculated using a four parameter non-linear curve fit.
