Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Tau binding assay
Description:  For displacement tau binding assay, unlabeled test compounds were dissolved in DMSO at 1 mM. Dilutions of tests compounds to various concentrations were made in 100% DMSO at 1000 final assay concentration and 0.225 μl aliquots were dispensed into assay plates. Brain homogenates were diluted to 0.5 mg/mL from original 30 mg/mL volume in Assay Buffer, and 200 μl were added to the assay plate for a final concentration of 100 μg wet weight/assay tube. [3H]-6 was prepared at 100 final concentration in Assay Buffer plus 20% DMSO and 25 μl was added to the assay plate for final assay concentration of 0.25 nM. The assay plate was incubated at room temperature (25 C.) for 90 minutes. Unbound and bound ligand were separated by filtration of bound onto GF/C filter plates (pre-treated for 30 min with 0.2% polyethyleninamine) using a Packard UniFilter Harvester and washing away unbound with 2.5 ml per well ice cold 5 mM Tris at pH 7.4. Filter plates were dried for 1 hour in a vacuum oven and 50 μl/well MicroScint-20 were added. Plates were counted 1 min per well by Packard Topcount. Total amount of radioligand used in the assay was determined by counting 25 μl of 10 ligand stock. Data was analyzed using Activity Base software to generate 4 p fit of dose responses; and, Ki values were calculated.
