Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  sGC-HEK-cGMP Assay
Description:  Human embryonic kidney cells (HEK293), endogenously expressing soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC), were used to evaluate the activity of test compounds. Compounds stimulating the sGC enzyme should cause an increase in the intracellular concentration of cGMP. HEK 293 cells were seeded in Dulbecco's Modification of Eagle's Medium supplemented with fetal bovine serum (10% final) and penicillin (100 U/mL)/streptomycin (100 μg/mL) in a 50 μL volume at a density of 1.5104 cells/well in a poly-D-lysine coated 384 well flat bottom plate. Cells were incubated overnight at 37 C. in a humidified chamber with 5% CO2. Medium was aspirated and cells were washed with 1 Hank's Buffered Saline Salt Solution (50 μL). Cells were then incubated for 15 minutes at 37 C. with 50 μL of a 0.5 mM 3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine (IBMX) solution. Test article and Diethylenetriamine NONOate (DETA-NONOate) solutions (x μM concentration for test article solution and 10 μM concentration for DETA-NONOate solution; wherein x is one of the following concentrations: 0.029 nM to 30000 nM). were then added to the assay mixture and the resulting mixture incubated at 37 C. for 20 minutes. After the 20 minute incubation, the assay mixture was aspirated and 10% acetic acid containing 150 ng/mL+3-cGMP (internal standard for LCMS) (50 μL) was added to the cells. The plate was incubated at 4 C. for 30 minutes in the acetic acid solution to stop the reaction and lyse the cells. The plates were then centrifuged at 1,000 g for 3 minutes at 4 C. and the supernatant transferred to a clean reaction plate for LCMS analysis.cGMP concentrations were determined from each sample using the LCMS conditions below (Table 5) and calculated standard curve. The standard curve was prepared in 10% acetic acid with 150 ng/mL+3cGMP (isotopically labelled cGMP with a weight 3 units higher than wild type) with the following final concentrations of cGMP in ng/mL: 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, 2000.
