Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Androgen Receptor Assay
Description:  Androgen binding is measured using the hydroxylapatite (HAP) assay. In brief, the radioactive steroid [3H]R1881 solubilized in ethanol is diluted with buffer B (10 mM Tris-HCl, 1.5 mM EDTA disodium salt, 10 mM α-monothioglycerol, pH 7.4). Aliquots of the cell or prostate cytosol preparation (0.1 ml) are then incubated with 5 nM [3H]R1881 (0.1 ml, 100 000 cpm) in the presence or absence of the indicated concentrations of unlabeled compounds (0.1 ml, prepared in buffer B containing 30% ethanol) for 16-18 h at 0-4 C. Triamcinolone acetonide (TAC; 100 nM) is added to mask progesterone receptors. Unbound steroids are separated by incubation for 40 min at 0-4 C. with 0.3 ml HAP prepared in buffer P (50 mM Tris-HCl, 10 mM KH2PO4, pH 7.4). After incubation with HAP and 10 min of centrifugation at 1000g, the pellet is washed 3 times with 1 ml of buffer P. Thereafter, the radioactivity is extracted from the pellet by incubation at room temperature for 60 min with 1 ml of ethanol. After centrifugation, the supernatant is decanted into a scintillation vial and the pellet is extracted again with ethanol. After the addition of scintillation liquid, the radioactivity is measured in a liquid scintillation counter.
