The Transfluor Assay, validated on over 90 different GPCRs, uses a common pathway independent of downstream G-protein signaling which is shared by virtually all GPCRs, representing all classes of GPCRs and G proteins. The assay uses image analysis to quantitate internalization of GFP-tagged beta-arrestin that associates with the receptor of interest following activation.1 (See Figure 1.)
Unstimulated cells display diffuse cytoplasmic beta-arrestin-GFP fluorescence.
When an over-expressed GPCR is activated, beta-arrestin targets the receptor
for internalization, resulting in the appearance of small fluorescent
clathrin-coated pits. If the receptor has a high affinity for beta-arresti
