Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Receptor Selection and Amplification Assays
Description:  NIH-3T3 cells were grown in 96-well tissue culture plates to 70% to 80% confluence. Cells were transfected with plasmid DNAs using Superfect Reagent (QIAGEN, Valencia, Calif.) as per the manufacturer's protocols. After 16-22 hours, medium was replaced with DMEM containing 1% PSG, 0.5% calf serum, 25% Ultraculture synthetic supplement (Cambrex, Walkersville, Md.) instead of calf serum, and the indicated concentrations of ligand. Cells were then grown in a humidified atmosphere with 5% ambient CO2 for 4 to 6 days. Media were then removed from the plates, and beta-galactosidase activity was measured by the addition of o-nitrophenyl-D-galactopyranoside (in phosphate-buffered saline with 5% NP-40 detergent). The resulting colorimetric reaction was measured in a spectrophotometric plate reader (Titertek, Helsinki, Finland) at 420 nM. All data represent the mean of three wells and were analyzed using the computer program Excel Fit, and EC50 determinations were made using least-squares fit analysis with GraphPad Software Inc. (San Diego, Calif.) software.
