Vesicular Transport Assay

Description

The vesicular transport assay is performed using inside out vesicles from membranes expressing the transporter of interest. The method can be applied to measure either inhibitory or substrate type interactions with ABC efflux transporters. The vesicular transport inhibition assay is a robust and quick assay suitable for screening large numbers of compounds. The read-out of the assay is easy to interpret and suitable for IC50 determinations (ITC reference ). The success of substrate assays depends very much on the passive permeability of the compound. High permeability compounds will diffuse out of the vesicles and therefore will not be detected as substrates.

SOLVO Biotechnology offers vesicular transport substrates studies in four levels. The launch of the given Part(s) depend(s) on the success of the previous Part(s).

Part 1 – Vesicular Transport inhibitor assessment (IC50 determination)

Part 2.1. – Vesicular Transport substrate assessment - feasibility studies: pilot experiments to determine the feasibility of testing

Part 2.2. – Vesicular Transport substrate assessment - characterization studies: Detailed characterization of the transport, determination of KM and Vmax

Part 2.3. – Optional Part for characterizing potential drug-drug interactions
