Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Enzyme Inhibitory Assay
Description:  HEPES buffered saline (20 mM HEPES, 150 mM NaCl, pH 7.4; hereinafter, referred to as HBS) was used in the preparation of a reaction solution. To 12 μL of a 250 μg/mL TAFI solution, 30 μL of an HBS solution containing 4 U/mL human thrombin, 12 U/mL rabbit lung thrombomodulin, and 12 mM CaCl2 was added, and the mixture was gently stirred. Then, TAFI was activated at room temperature. Ten minutes later, thrombin was neutralized by the addition of 10 μL of 100 μM PPACK (thrombin inhibitor) to terminate the activation of TAFI. The formed TAFIa was stored in ice and diluted immediately before use in determination with 2050 μL of an HBS solution containing BSA (bovine serum albumin) adjusted to 0.1% in terms of the final concentration. A test substance was dissolved in HBS to prepare a 10-fold dilution series of evaluation concentrations. 80 μL of the TAFIa solution and 10 μL of the test substance were added to each well of a 96-well plate and mixed by shaking for 10 minutes. 10 μL of furylacryloyl-alanyl-lysine (FAAK) adjusted to 5 mg/mL was added to each well, and the change in the absorbance of this mixed solution at 330 nm was read for 30 minutes to determine the degradation rate of the substrate.
