Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  In Vitro Functional Activity (Agonism) on Human S1P3 Receptors
Description:  The CHO-human-S1P3-Aeqorin assay (CHO/Gα16/AEQ/h-S1P3) was established at Solvay Pharmaceuticals. The plasmid DNA coding for the S1P3 receptor (accession number in GenBank NM_005226 was purchased from UMR cDNA resource Centre (Rolla, Mo.). The pcDNA3.1/hS1P3 construct carrying the mitochondrially targeted apo-Aeqorin and Gal6 protein was transfected in CHO K1 cell-line.Human-S1P3-Aequorin cells express mitochondrial targeted apo-Aequorin. Cells have to be loaded with coelanterazine, in order to reconstitute active Aequorin. After binding of agonists to the human S1P3 receptor the intracellular calcium concentration increases and binding of calcium to the apo-Aequorin/coelenterazine complex leads to an oxidation reaction of coelenterazine, which results in the production of apo-Aequorin, coelenteramide, CO2 and light (□max 469 nm). This luminescent response is dependent on the agonist concentration. Luminescence is measured using the MicroBeta Jet (Perkin Elmer). Agonistic effects of compounds are expressed as pEC50. Compounds were tested at a 10 points half log concentration range, and 3 independent experiments were performed in single point's measurements.
