The PathHunter CHO-K1 CNR1 Bioassay Kit provides an easy-to-use cell based assay to measure drug potency and detect neutralizing antibodies. This bioassay asseses ligand (e.g. Melanin Concentrating Hormone (6-17)) based on activation of CNR1 GPCR activity via detection of β-Arrestin recruitment. The included cell line overexpresses ProLink-tagged CNR1 and EA-tagged β-Arrestin-2. Activation of CNR1 stimulates the recruitment of β-Arrestin-2 and produces EFC signal. Bioassay kits are a convenient, ready-to-use format which contains all materials needed to run the assay, including single-use vials of cryopreserved cells, cell plating media, control agonist, detection reagent, and assay plates.
