Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Inhibition Assay
Description:  The procedure for measuring the 11β-HSD1-inhibitory activity is as follows. The enzyme reaction and the measurement were carried out using a 384-well plate. The enzyme was prepared in accordance with Journal of Biological Chemistry, 2001, Vol. 276, p. 21343-21350. The reaction was carried out by adding a test compound at various concentrations to a reaction liquid consisting of a 5 mM phosphate buffer (pH 6.6), 200 nM cortisone, 40 μM reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH), and rat recombinant 11β-HSD1, followed by incubating at room temperature for one hour (10 μl/well). The test compound was prepared by dissolving in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) such that a DMSO concentration reached 1% in the reaction liquid. After the enzyme reaction was completed, the enzyme inhibitory action was measured by detecting cortisol using a homogeneous time-resolved fluorescence (HTRF) method. Each of a d2-labeled cortisol containing 400 μM carbenoxolone and a cryptate-labeled cortisol antibody (CIS Bio International Co., Ltd.) was added at 5 μl/well, followed by incubating at room temperature for 2 hours, and then the fluorescence intensity was measured using a fluorophotometer (trade name: ARVO HTS 1420, Perkin Elmer/Wallac), and the enzyme inhibitory activity was calculated from the fluorescence intensity ratio of two wavelengths (665 nm/620 nm).The measurement results were calculated by averaging the values of 3 wells of the same condition. The ratio when DMSO was added instead of the test compound was taken as 0% and the ratio when 11β-HSD1 was not added was taken as 100%, thereby calculating the 50% inhibition concentration of the test compound as IC50 of the compound inhibitory activity.
