Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Pharmacological Assay
Description:  The pharmacological activity of the compounds was tested using the following method: cDNA encoding rat mGlu 5a receptor was transiently transfected into EBNA cells using a procedure described by E.-J. Schlaeger and K. Christensen (Cytotechnology 1998, 15, 1-13). [Ca2+]i measurements were performed on mGlu 5a transfected EBNA cells after incubation of the cells with Fluo 3-AM (obtainable by FLUKA, 0.5 μM final concentration) for 1 hour at 37 C. followed by 4 washes with assay buffer (DMEM supplemented with Hank's salt and 20 mM HEPES. [Ca2+]i measurements were done using a fluorometric imaging plate reader (FLIPR, Molecular Devices Corporation, La Jolla, Calif., USA). When compounds were evaluated as antagonists they were tested against 10 μM glutamate as agonist.
