Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Inhibition of IRAP Activity
Description:  Rat epididymal fat pads were homogenized and subjected to ultracentrifugation at 100,000g for 30 minutes to obtain microsomes containing IRAP. The microsomes (with a total protein content of 55 μg/well) were mixed with a solvent (dimethyl sulfoxide; hereinafter, abbreviated as DMSO (final concentration: 0.1%)) or with each test compound (common ratio: 3; maximum concentration: 10 μM). AVP was then added to the solution to a final concentration of 25 μM, and the resulting solution was allowed to react for one hour at 37 C. An aqueous trifluoroacetic acid (hereinafter, abbreviated as TFA) solution was then added to the solution (final concentration: 1%) to stop the enzymatic reaction. Residual AVP was then determined by mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS). Based on the results, IC50 values (nM), i.e. concentrations required for 50% inhibition of decrease in AVP level in the solvent control group, of the individual test compounds were calculated by the Sigmoid-Emax model nonlinear regression analysis to evaluate inhibition of IRAP activity.
