Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Receptor Inhibition Assay
Description:  Stably expressing cell line (C6BU-1 cell transfected with human P2X3 receptor gene (GenBank accession number Y07683) was used. The cells were seeded in a 384-well PDL-coated microtiter plate at a concentration of 3000 cells/well and cultured in the medium (8.3% fetal bovine serum, 8.3% horse serum, and 1% antibiotic and antifungal in DMEM) for one day at 37 C. under 5% carbon dioxide atmosphere. The medium was replaced with 4 μM Fluo-3-AM solution (20 mM HEPES, 137 mM NaCl, 2.7 mM KCl, 0.9 mM MgCl2, 5.0 mM CaCl2, 5.6 mM D-glucose, 2.5 mM probenecid, 0.5% BSA, and 0.04% Pluronic P-127, pH 7.5) and incubated at 37 C. under 5% dioxide carbon atmosphere for one hour. The plate was washed with washing buffer (20 mM HEPES, 137 mM NaCl, 2.7 mM KCl, 0.9 mM MgCl2, 5.0 mM CaCl2, 5.6 mM D-glucose, 2.5 mM probenecid, pH 7.5), and each well was added with 20 μL of the washing buffer. The plate was placed in High-Throughput Screening System FLIPR 384 (Molecular Device Co.). Measurement of fluorescence intensity by FLIPR 884 was started, and 20 μL of DMSO solutions containing different concentrations of the test compound as prepared by dilution with dilution buffer (20 mM HEPES, 137 mM NaCl, 2.7 mM KCl, 0.9 mM MgCl2, 5.0 mM CaCl2, 5.6 mM D-glucose, 2.5 mM probenecid, 0.1% Pluronic F-127, pH 7.5) were dispensed to each well through the built-in automatic dispenser. Five minutes after, 150 nM ATP solution (25 μL) prepared by dilution with the dilution buffer was dispensed through the built-in automatic dispenser, and the measurement of fluorescence intensity was continued for 4 min. For each well, the specific maximum fluorescence intensity was calculated as the ratio of the maximum fluorescence intensity after addition of the ATP solution to the fluorescence intensity at the starting of the measurement.
