Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  HTRF Assay
Description:  PDE4B2 activity is detected using the LANCE Ultra cAMP homogeneous time resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer (TR-FRET) assay from Perkin Elmer. The assay is based on the competition between the europium (Eu) chelate-labeled cAMP tracer and sample cAMP for binding sites on cAMP-specific monoclonal antibodies (mAb) labelled with the ULight¿ dye. The assay is carried out in 384-well low volume plates in a volume of 10 μl. Human recombinant PDE4B2 (80 pM) is incubated for 2 h with 3 nM cAMP in buffer containing 1×HBSS, 5 mM HEPES, 3 mM MgCl2, 0.1% BSA, pH 7.4 with or without test compounds. The enzymatic reactions are efficiently stopped by the addition of 500 μM IBMX present in the combined Stop/Detection buffer containing europium (Eu) chelate-labeled cAMP tracer and cAMP-specific monoclonal antibodies (mAb) labelled with the ULight¿ dye. Samples are then further incubated for 1 h before plates are read at ex 340 nm and em at 665 nm and 615 nm on an EnVision reader. IC50 values are determined from competition curves using a non-linear curve fitting program.
