Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Nav1.5 Assay
Description:  To assess the potential cardiac liability of compounds at an early stage in the drug discovery process, a Nav1.5 sodium channel screening assay was be performed on Molecular Device's PatchXpress™ automated electrophysiology platform. Under voltage-clamp conditions, Nav1.5 currents were recorded from HEK cells expressing the human Nav1.5 channel in the absence and presence of increasing concentrations of the test compound to obtain an IC50 value. The external recording solution contained (in mM): 90 TEACl, 50 NaCl, 1.8 CaCl, 1 MgCl2, 10 HEPES, 10 glucose, adjusted to pH 7.4 with TEA-OH and to 300 mOsm with sucrose (if necessary), while the internal patch pipette solution contained (in mM): 129 CsF, 2 MgCl2, 11 EGTA, 10 HEPES, 3 Na2ATP adjusted to pH 7.2 with CsOH and to 290 mOsm with sucrose (if necessary). Nav1.5 channel currents were evoked using a cardiac action potential waveform at 1 Hz, digitized at 31.25 kHz and low-pass filtered at 12 kHz.
