Cell lines expressing recombinant aequorin and a G-protein coupled receptor for functional screening

he detection of antagonists, CHO-5HT2B- Gα16-aequorin cells were incubated with various concentrations of the compounds to be tested. An agonist (α-methyl-5-HT) at a single concentration was then injected on the mixture of cells + antagonist and the emitted light was recorded and integrated for 30 seconds. Non-surmountable antagonists (Methiothepin, Methysergide) as well as surmountable antagonists (Mesulergine, Mianserin, Ketanserin) prevented, in a dosedependent manner the activation of the 5- HT2B receptor by α-methyl-5-HT (Figure 6B). Similar results were obtained with other antagonists (Ritanserin, rauwolscine, Yohimbine, Spiperone, SB206553 not shown).

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES PROVIDED BY EUROSCREEN

Custom cloning of the G-protein coupled receptor and establishment of a stable cell line, expressing the receptor and apoaequorin.

Selection of the most appropriate calciumcoupling system, if necessary.
