    The range of assay technologies for the binding and signaling has been developed in HTS laboratories for the identification of hit or lead compounds acting on GPCRs. The [35S] GTPγS binding assay still remains to be a useful and simple technique to demonstrate receptor activation and is one of the few functional, cell-free assays. However, its radioactive nature imposes clear limitations to its use in regular laboratory practice and in high-throughput experimentations. Herein, we have developed a new non-radioactive version of the assay using europium-labeled GTP analogue in which europium-GTP binding can be assayed using time-resolved fluorescence. In continuation with our efforts, this assay was adapted for Histamine 3 receptors. The assay format was specifically evaluated by testing known histamine 3 agonists (Imetit, Immepip, Methylhistamine, Proxifan and Histamine) and anta.. Read More»
