GPCR Division Arrested Cells
Figure 1 - Cost-Effective Access to High Quality, Validated GPCR Cell Lines
Figure 2 - Dose response to VIP of VPAC1 CHO-K1 non-division-arrested and division-arrested cells. VPAC1 CHO-K1 cells (10,000 cells/well) were plated the day before the assay in a 384-well format in division-arrested and non-divison-arrested formats. The day of the assay, cells were stimulated with VIP over the indicated concentration range in the presence of 0.5% DMSO for 3 hr. Cells were then loades with LiveBLAzer™-FRET B/G Substrate (2 μM final concentration of CCF4-AM + 1 mM Solution D) for 2 hr. Fluorescence emission values at 460 nm and 530 were obtained using a standard fluorescence plate reader, and the response ratios plotted against the indicated concentrations of VIP (n=6 for each data point).
Figure 3 - Improved assay consistency with division-arrested cells. Three sets of division-arrested (DA) and growing (GR) cells were plated at the same time but entered the assay at three different time points. Better CV and Z' -factor valutes were observed with division-arrested cells (CV 7.5%, Z'-factor 0.76) than with growing cells (CV 20.1%, Z'-factor 0.38).
