Overview

Tachykinin receptor or NK1 receptor is a GPCR. NK1 receptors are found in the GI tract, where it is a component of the centrally mediated vomiting reflex.

Cells expressing the NK1 receptor are provided pre-labeled with Terbium, and can be used to conduct receptor binding studies on the aforementioned receptor.

Benefits

  • PRE-LABELED WITH TERBIUM
  • FROZEN CELLS, READY TO BE USED
  • CELLS/LIGAND VALIDATED FOR BINDING

Assay principle

Running your NK1 receptor binding assay using Tag-lite is as easy as it can gets. Simply dispense 10 µL of labeled cells into each well, followed by 5 µL of labeled ligand and 5 µL of the compound you wish to test. Like all HTRF assays, Tag-lite assays do not require any washing steps. A diagram of the procedure to be followed is given on the right.

Saturation binding (KD)

A saturation binding assay measures total and non-specific binding for increasing concentrations of ligand under equilibrium conditions. To perform the assay, the fluorescent ligand is titrated into a solution containing a fixed amount of labeled cells and then incubated to equilibrium. The HTRF ratio obtained from this titration is the total binding.

Competitive binding (KI)

A competitive binding assay is performed to measure the dissociation constant, Ki. To perform the assay, the compound is titrated into a solution containing a fixed concentration of fluorescent ligand and a fixed amount of cells.
