Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Nav 1.7 In Vitro Patch Express (PX) Assay
Description:  HEK 293 cells stably transfected with human Nav1.7 were recorded in whole cell voltage clamp mode with the PatchXpress automated electrophysiology system (Molecular Devices, LLC, Sunnyvale, Calif.). Compound effects were measured on a partially inactivated state of the sodium channel. Cells were clamped to a holding potential yielding 20 to 50% inactivation. To elicit sodium current, channels were activated by pulsing to −10 mV for 20 msec. This voltage protocol was repeated at a rate of 0.1 Hz throughout the experiment. A single concentration of test compound was applied to cells for a duration of 3 minutes. Peak sodium current was measured at the end of the compound addition period to determine percent inhibition. Three to five cells were tested per concentration, and IC50 curves were fitted to percent inhibition as a function of concentration.
