Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  PMSA Inhibition Assay
Description:  For IC50 measurements, inhibitors were dissolved in Reaction Buffer containing 40 μM NAAG to a final volume of 100 μL. Then, 25 μL of this solution was transferred to each of three wells in a microtiter plate, and 5 μL aliquots were serially diluted into 20 μL of solution containing 40 μM NAAG over 10 wells (5-fold dilutions). Inhibitor concentration therefore ranged over 6 orders of magnitude in these experiments. rhPSMA (20 ng/mL in Reaction Buffer, 20 μL, R&D Research) was then added to each well. The plate was incubated at room temperature for 15 min, and then heated to 95 °C. for 3 minutes. The plate was allowed to cool to room temperature, and glutamic acid levels were measured using a commercially available Amplex® − Red Glutamic Acid/Glutamate Oxidase Assay Kit (Invitrogen). Fluorescence intensities were measured using a Synergy 2 multiwell plate reader (Biotek), fitted with excitation and emission filters of 545 nm and 590 nm, respectively. Ki values were obtained from IC50 values using the Cheng-Prusoff equation, a substrate concentration of 20 μM, and a Km value of 0.925 μM.
