Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Active Human ERK2 (hERK2) Activity Assay
Description:  Activated ERK2 activity was determined in an IMAP-FP assay (Molecular Devices). Using this assay format, the potency (IC50) of each compound was determined from a 10 point (1:3 serial dilution, 3 μM starting compound concentration) titration curve using the following outlined procedure. To each well of a black Corning 384-well plate (Corning Catalog #3575), 7.5 nL of compound (3333 fold dilution in final assay volume of 25 μL) was dispensed, followed by the addition of 15 μL of kinase buffer (tween containing kinase buffer, Molecular Devices) containing 0.0364 ng/mL (0.833 nM) of phosphorylated active hERK2 enzyme. Following a 15 minute compound & enzyme incubation, each reaction was initiated by the addition of 10 μL kinase buffer containing 2.45 μM ERK2 IMAP substrate peptides (2.25 μM-unlabeled peptide and 200 nM-labeled peptide, and 75 μM ATP. The final reaction in each well of 25 μL consists of 0.5 nM hERK2, 900 nM unlabeled peptide, 80 nM labeled-peptide, and 30 μM ATP. Phosphorylation reactions were allowed to proceed for 60 minutes and were immediately quenched by the addition of 60 μL IMAP detection beads (1:1000 dilutions) in IMAP binding buffer (Molecular Devices) with 24 mM NaCl. Plates were read on EnVision reader after 60 minutes binding equilibration using Fluorescence Polarization protocol (Perkin Elmer).
