Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  FP Competitive Binding Assay (BRD-1F)
Description:  The FAM labeled fluorescent probe (BRD-1F) was synthesized based on a known small-molecule BET bromodomain inhibitor. Kd values of BRD-1F to these three proteins were determined by monitoring the total fluorescence polarization of mixtures composed with the fluorescent probe at a fixed concentration and proteins with increasing concentrations up to full saturation. Fluorescence polarization values were measured using the Infinite M-1000 plate reader (Tecan U.S., Research Triangle Park, N.C.) in Corning 384 well flat bottom black plates (Corning Life Science). Serial dilutions of testing protein were mixed with BRD-1F to a final volume of 80 μl in the assay buffer (100 mM potassium phosphate, pH 7.5, 100 μg/ml bovine γ-globulin, 0.02% sodium azide, Invitrogen, with 0.01% Triton X-100 and 2.5% Ethylene Glycol). Final BRD-1F concentration was 5 nM. Plates were incubated at room temperature for 1-2 hours with gentle shaking to assure equilibrium. The polarization values in millipolarization units (mP) were measured at an excitation wavelength of 485 nm and an emission wavelength of 530 nm. Equilibrium dissociation constants (Kd) were then calculated by fitting the sigmoidal dose-dependent FP increases as a function of protein concentrations using Graphpad Prism 5.0 software (Graphpad Software, San Diego, Calif.).
