Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  FLAP Binding Assay (Test A)
Description:  Compounds were tested in a competition binding assay using 3H-MK591 as tracer. (Preparation of MK-591 is described in Bioorg. Med. Chem. Lett. 1999, 9, 2391). A 100,000g pellet from COS-7 cells stably transfected with a plasmid expressing human ALOX5AP was the source of FLAP. Membrane pellets were resuspended in buffer (100 mM Tris-HCl, 0.05% Tween-20, 140 mM NaCl, 2 mM EDTA, 0.5 mM DTT, 5% Glycerol, pH 7.5) to give a final protein concentration of 12 mg/mL (2 μg/well). To perform assays, 1.4 μL compounds were dispensed into 96-well plates in 3-fold dilution series in triplicate. 84 μL radioligand (25000 CPM, 2 nM final concentration in assay) was then added followed by 84 μL membrane suspension and incubation at rt for 60 min. Following filtration, filter plates were dried 12 h at RT (or 50 C. for 1 hour). 50 μL scintillant was then added, the filterplates were sealed and radioactivity was measured in a microbeta counter. Specific binding was defined as total binding minus non-specific binding. Total binding was defined as 3H-MK591 bound to membranes in the absence of competitor, non-specific binding was defined as 3H-MK591 in the presence of 0.1 mM MK-591. IC50 values were determined by plotting % inhibition versus log compound concentration and using a one site dose response model.
