Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  cAMP assay A.2
Description:  Inhibition of cAMP Activity of GPR6 In Vitro AssayThis cell based assay measures the ability of compounds to inhibit the constitutive cAMP activity of GPR6 receptor expressed in CHO-K1 cells. CHO cells were stably expressed with GPR6 receptor, whose expression is controlled by a tetracycline inducable element. The cells were cultured in medium containing F12K, 10% FBS, 1% Penn/Strep, 200 ug/mL Hygromycin. GPR6 receptor expression was induced for 20 hrs with 2 μg/ml doxycycline (sigma D9891) in growth media. After addition of doxycycline cells were plated at a density of 450-750 cells per well in 96-well half-volume black tissue culture plates (Costar) and placed in an incubator (37░, 5% CO2) for 20 hours prior to cAMP assays. Culture media was removed from cells and they were washed with 50 μL/well of Ringer's Buffer (MgCl2 0.047 mg/mL, NaH2PO4 0.18 mg/mL, Na2HPO4 0.1 mg/mL, KCl 0.34 mg/mL, NaHCO3 1.26 mg/mL, D-glucose 1.8 mg/mL, NaCl 7 mg/mL; pH=7.4). Compounds suspended in DMSO were diluted in Ringer's Buffer containing 0.5% fatty acid free BSA plus 300 μM IBMX and incubated on cells for 45 min at 37░ and 5% CO2. After incubation cells were incubated for 10 min at room temp with Eu-cAMP tracer solution from a Perkin Elmer Lance HTRF Ultra cAMP assay kit (TRF0263). Then ULight┐-anti-cAMP solution from the Lance HTRF kit was added and incubated on a shaker at room temp for 1 hour prior to HTRF detection in a Perkin Elmer Envision plate reader. IC50 curves were generated with a four-parameter logistic equation using GraphPad Prism 5.03.
