      DescriptionPrecisION™ hERG ion channel membrane preparation
      OverviewHuman ERG
      Background InformationThe human ether-a-go-go related gene (hERG) is a potassium ion channel which is essential for normal cardiac repolarization. In drug screening models, the hERG K+ channel has been indicated to inhibit a wide variety of compounds, and its blockage can lead to cardiac QT interval prolongation and life threatening arrhythmias (Murphy et al. 2006). Cardiac safety relating to IKr K+ channels has become a major concern of regulatory agencies, as hERG channel inhibition has been identified as the firmest link to QT prolongation (Chiu et al. 2004). Millipore's hERG membrane preparations are crude membrane preparations made from HEK293 stable recombinant cell lines (Millipore cat. # CYL3039), which are ideal HTS tools for screening antagonists against the hERG channel. The membrane preparations exhibit a Kd of 5.2 nM for [3H]-Astemizole. With 10 μg/well hERG Membrane Prep and 3.0 nM [3H]-Astemizole, a greater than 4-fold signal-to-background ratio was obtained.

      Incubation ConditionsRECOMMENDED ASSAY CONDITIONS: Membranes are mixed with radioactive ligand and unlabeled competitor (see Figures 1 and 2 for concentrations tested) in binding buffer in a nonbinding 96-well plate, and incubated for 1-2 h. Prior to filtration, an FB 96-well harvest plate (Millipore cat. # MAHF B1H) is coated with 0.33% polyethyleneimine for 30 min, then washed with 25 mM Tris, pH 7.4, 130 mM NaCl, 5 mM KCl, 0.8 mM CaCl2, 0.1% BSA. Binding reaction is transferred to the filter plate, and washed 6 times (250μL per well per wash) with Wash Buffer. The plate is dried and counted.

      Binding buffer: 10 mM Hepes, pH 7.4, 130 mM NaCl, 5 mM KCl, 0.8 mM MgCl2, 1 mM NaEGTA, 10 mM glucose, 0.1% BSA, filtered and stored at 4°C

      Radioligand: [3H]-Astemizole (Perkin Elmer # NET-1140)

      Wash Buffer: 25 mM Tris, pH 7.4, 130 mM NaCl, 5 mM KCl, 0.8 mM MgCl2, 0.05 mM CaCl2, 0.1% BSA, filtered and stored at 4°C

      One package contains enough membranes for at least 200 assays (units), where a unit is the amount of membrane that will yield greater than 4-fold signal: background with 3H-labeled Astemizole.
