Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  5-HT2C Receptor Binding Assay
Description:  A solution of 200 μL in total was prepared by mixing 50 μL of [3H] mesulergine (manufactured by GE Healthcare) diluted with 50 mmol/L Tris-HCl (pH=7.4) (final concentration: about 2 nmol/L), 149 μL of the h-5-HT2C/CHO membrane preparation (protein amount: 20 μg/well), and 1 μL of the test drug dissolved in dimethylsulfoxide. The solution was reacted at 37 C. for 30 minutes, and then quickly suction-filtered under reduced pressure through a glass fiber filter coated with 1% aq. bovine serum albumin. The glass fiber filter was washed twice with 250 μL of 50 mmol/L Tris-HCl (pH=7.4), placed in a plastic vial containing 4 mL of liquid scintillator (ACS-II, manufactured by Amersham) or Ecoscint A (manufactured by National Diagnostics), and the remaining radioactivity on the filter paper was assayed with a liquid scintillation counter. The non-specific binding of [3H] mesulergine was defined as a binding amount in the presence of 10 μmol/L SB206553 (manufactured by Sigma Aldrich). The IC50 value was calculated according to Hill analysis, and the binding inhibition constant (Ki) was calculated according to the following formula: Binding inhibition constant (Ki)=IC50/(1+S/Kd) wherein S is a concentration of the added [3H] mesulergine, and Kd is a binding dissociation constant of [3H] mesulergine which was calculated from a saturated binding assay using the same cell membrane. A lower Ki value (i.e. a lower 5-HT2C binding inhibition constant) means that the test drug has a higher affinity for human serotonin reuptake inhibitory action.
