Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  GPR6 In Vitro Assay (A.2)
Description:  This 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% PennStrep, 200 ug/mL Hygromycin. GPR6 receptor expression was induced for 20 hrs with 2 ug/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 uL/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.
