PathHunter® eXpress GPR146 CHO-K1 β-Arrestin Orphan GPCR Assay

PathHunter® eXpress β-Arrestin Orphan GPCR cells are engineered to co-express the ProLink™ (PK) tagged GPCR and the Enzyme Acceptor (EA) tagged β-Arrestin. Activation of the GPCR-PK induces β-Arrestin-EA recruitment, forcing complementation of the two β-galactosidase enzyme fragments (EA and PK). The resulting functional enzyme hydrolyzes substrate to generate a chemiluminescent signal. These cells have been modified to prevent long term propagation and expansion using a proprietary compound that has no apparent effect on assay performance.

Figure 1. Cell lysates prepared from PathHunter® Orphan GPCR β-Arrestin cell lines were treated with PNGase F (Glyko: GKE-5003), run on a SDS-PAGE gel and analyzed using the PathHunter® EAstern Blot Kit (DRx: 93-0053). Untreated lane resolves a band of appropriate size corresponding to GPCR-PK fusion protein and the PNGase F treated lane resolves a deglycosylated band indicative of proper expression and folding of GPCR protein.
Figure 2. PathHunter® eXpress cells were analyzed for basal activity as well as GPCR-ProLink™ expression by comparing the ratio of signal between untreated cells and cells treated with saturating amounts of exogenous EA, using ProLink™ Detection Kit (DRx: 92-0006). Signal from complementation of ProLink™ and EA fragments correlates to the amount of GPCR-PK expression in the cell line.
Figure 3. Viability of PathHunter® eXpress cells were confirmed by bright field microscopy.
