Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Ca2+ Flux Assay
Description:  1321N1 cells expressing the recombinant human or rat P2X7 channel was cultured in HyQ DME/(HyClone/Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium) high glucose supplemented with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) and appropriate selection marker. Cells were seeded at a density of 25000 cells/well (96-well clear bottom black walled plates) in 100 μl volume/well. On the day of the experiment, cell plates were washed with assay buffer, containing (in mM): 130 NaCl, 2 KCl, 1 CaCl2, 1 MgCl2, 10 HEPES, 5 glucose; pH 7.40 and 300 mOs. After the wash, cells were loaded with the Calcium-4 dye (Molecular Device) and incubated in the dark for 60 minutes. Test compounds were prepared at 250 the test concentration in neat DMSO. Intermediate 96-well compound plates were prepared by transferring 1.2 μL of the compound into 300 μL of assay buffer. A further 3 dilution occurred when transferring 50 μL/well of the compound plate to 100 μL/well in the cell plate. Cells were incubated with test compounds and dye for 30 minutes. Calcium dye fluorescence was monitored in FLIPR as the cells were challenged by adding 50 μL/well of BzATP (final concentration is 250 μM BzATP (human and rat)).
