Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  LPAR3 Calcium Flux Assays
Description:  A cDNA encoding the human LPAR3 receptor is synthesized and cloned into pDNA3 expression plasmid. The plasmid is transfected in U2OS cells using Lipofectamine 2000 (Invitrogen Corp., USA). Clones stably expressing human LPAR3 are selected using neomycin and identified as cells that show Ca-influx in response to LPA.U2OS cells overexpressing human LPAR3 are seeded at 20,000-40,000 cells per well in a 96-well poly-D-lysine coated plate one day before the assay. Prior to the assay, the cells are washed once with assay buffer (HBSS containing 20 mM HEPES and 0.2% BSA) and then incubated in 50 μl of assay buffer for 60 minutes. Then 50 μl of a calcium indicator dye (Fluo-4 NW, Molecular Probes) are added to each well and incubation is continued for 30 minutes at 37° C. and then 30 minutes at room temperature. 50 μl of test compounds in 4% DMSO are added to the cells and incubation continued at room temperature for 40 minutes. Cells are stimulated by the addition of 50 μl of 128 nM LPA and intracellular calcium is measured using the FLIPR TETRA (Molecular Devices). IC50 values are determined using “Genedata Screener” analysis tool.
