    20 assays



    Product Description


        A structurally diverse repertoire of ligands, from photons to large peptides, activates G protein-coupled
    receptors (GPCRs) to elicit their physiological functions. Ligand-bound GPCRs, in turn, function as
    guanine nucleotide exchange factors catalyzing the exchange of GDP bound on the Gα subunit with
    GTP in the presence of Gβγ, causing the dissociation of the Gα subunit from the Gβγ dimer to form
    two functional units (Gα and Gβγ). Both Gα and Gβγ subunits signal to various cellular signaling
    pathways. Based on the sequence and functional homologies, G proteins are grouped into four families:

    Gs, Gi, Gq, and G12.


        Gαi family (including Gαo) is the largest family of G proteins. They relay signals from many GPCRs
    to regualte various biological functions. There were no direct methods to measure the activation of
    Gαo proteins by receptors (until this assay kit). Most reports used one of the downstream pathway, i.e.

    the inhibition of adenylyl cyclases, as a readout.


        NewEast Biosciences Gαo Activation Assay Kit provides a direct measurement of the activation of Gαo
    proteins. This is a simple and fast tool to monitor the activation of Gαo. Each kit provides sufficient

    quantities to perform 20 assays.


        NewEast Biosciences Gαo Activation Assay Kit is based on the monoclonal antibody specifically
    recognizing the active GTP-bound Gαo proteins. This monoclonal antibody has much lower affinity
    towards the inactive Gαo proteins. Therefore, after activation by receptor signals, active GTP-bound
    o proteins could be immunoprecipitated by this monoclonal antibody and further quantified by
    western blot with another anti Gαo antibody. 


    Assay Principle


        NewEast Biosciences Gαo Activation Assay Kit is an immunoprecipitation/western blot assay to
    measure the levels of active GTP-bound Gαo proteins, either from cell extracts or from in vitro GTPγS
    loaded Gαo proteins. Briefly, the anti active Gαo monoclonal antibody will specifically bind to active
    o protein. This antibody/Gαo complex will then be pulled down by protein A/G agarose. The

    precipitated active Gαo proteins will be detected by immunoblots with another anti Gαo antibody.

    Reagent Preparation


    1X Assay/Lysis Buffer: Mix the 5X Stock briefly and dilute to 1X in deionized water. Just prior to

    usage, add protease inhibitors such as 1 mM PMSF, 10 µg/mL leupeptin, and 10 µg/mL aprotinin. 



    Sample Preparation


    Adherent Cells

    1. Culture cells (one 10-cm plate, ~ 107cells) to approximately 80-90 % confluence. Stimulate cells with
        activator or inhibitor as desired.

    2. Aspirate the culture media and wash twice with ice-cold PBS.

    3. Completely remove the final PBS wash and add ice-cold 1X Assay/Lysis Buffer to the cells (0.5- 1 mL per
         10 cm tissue culture plate).

    4. Place the culture plates on ice for 10-20 minutes.
    5. Detach the cells from the plates by scraping with a cell scraper.
    6. Transfer the lysates to appropriate size tubes and place on ice.

    7. If nuclear lysis occurs, the cell lysates may become very viscous and difficult to pipette. If this occurs,
        lysates can be passed through a 27½-gauge syringe needle 3-4 times to shear the 
    genomic DNA.

    8. Clear the lysates by centrifugation for 10 minutes (12,000 x g at 4 °C).

    9. Collect the supernatant and store samples (~1-2 mg of total proteins) on ice for immediate use,or snap
        freeze and store at - 70 °C for future use.


    Suspension Cells
    1. Culture cells and stimulate with activator or inhibitor as desired.
    2. Perform a cell count, and then pellet the cells by centrifugation.
    3. Aspirate the culture media and wash twice with ice-cold PBS.

    4. Completely remove the final PBS wash and add ice-cold 1X Assay/Lysis Buffer to the cell pellet (0.5 – 1
         mL per 1 x 10
    7cells).

    5. Lyse the cells by repeated pipetting.
    6. Transfer the lysates to appropriate size tubes and place on ice. 

    7. If nuclear lysis occurs, the cell lysates may become very viscous and difficult to pipette. If this occurs,
        lysates can be passed through a 27½-gauge syringe needle 3-4 times to shear the genomic DNA.

    8. Clear the lysates by centrifugation for 10 minutes (12,000 x g at 4 °C).

    9. Collect the supernatant and store samples on ice for immediate use, or snap freeze and store at -70 °C for
        future use.  



    In vitro GTPγS/GDP Protein Loading for positive and negative controls
    Note: In vivo stimulation of cells with receptor ligands might activate ~10 % of the available Gαo
    proteins, whereas in vitro GTPγS loading could activate ~30 % of the Gαo proteins that can be activated.
    1. Aliquot 0.5 mL of each cell extract to two microfuge tubes.
    2. To each tube, add 5 µL of 1M MgCl2 (to 10 mM final concentration).
    3. Add 5 µL of 100X GTPγS (to 100 µM, final concentration) to one tube (positive control).
    4. Add 5 µL of 100X GDP (to 1 mM, final concentration) to the second tube (negative control).
    5. Incubate the tubes at 30°C for 90 minutes with agitation. 



    Assay Procedure


    I. Active Gαo Pull-Down Assay
    1. Aliquot 0.5 – 1 mL of cell lysate to a microcentrifuge tube.
    2. Adjust the volume of each sample to 1 mL with 1X Assay/Lysis Buffer.
    3. Add 1 µL anti active Gαo monoclonal antibody (Cat. No. 26907) to the tube.
    4. Thoroughly resuspend the protein A/G agarose bead slurry by vortexing or titurating.
    5. Add 20 µL of resuspended bead slurry to each tube.
    6. Incubate the tubes at 4 °C for 1 hour with gentle agitation.
    7. Pellet the beads by centrifugation for 10 seconds at 12,000 x g.
    8. Aspirate and discard the supernatant, making sure not to disturb/remove the bead pellet.
    9. Wash the bead 3 times with 0.5 mL of 1X Assay/Lysis Buffer, centrifuging and aspirating each time.

    10. After the last wash, pellet the beads and carefully remove all the supernatant. 

    11. Resuspend the bead pellet in 20 µL of 2X reducing SDS-PAGE sample buffer.

    12. Boil each sample for 5 minutes.
    13. Centrifuge each sample for 10 seconds at 12,000 x g.  


    II. Electrophoresis and Transfer

    1. Load 20 µL/well of pull-down supernatant to a polyacrylamide gel. Also, it’s recommended to include a
         pre-stained MW standard (as an indicator of a successful transfer in step 3).

    2. Perform SDS-PAGE as per the manufacturer’s instructions.

    3. Transfer the gel proteins to a PVDF or nitrocellulose membrane as per the manufacturer’s instructions. 


    III. Immunoblotting and Detection (all steps are at room temperature, with agitation)

    1. Following the electroblotting step, immerse the PVDF membrane in 100% Methanol for 15 seconds, and     then allow it to dry at room temperature for 5 minutes.
        Note: If Nitrocellulose is used instead of PVDF, this step should be skipped.

    2. Block the membrane with 5 % non-fat dry milk or 3 % BSA in TBST for 1 hr at room temperature with
        constant agitation.

        Incubate the membrane with anti Gαo polyclonal antibody (Cat. No. 21015), freshly diluted
        1:500 ~ 1000 in 5 % non-fat dry milk or 3 % BSA/TBST, for 1-2 hr at room temperature with
        constant agitation.
    Note: To conserve antibody, incubations should be performed in a plastic bag.
    3. Wash the blotted membrane three times with TBST, 5 minutes each time.

    4. Incubate the membrane with a secondary antibody (e.g. goat anti rabbit IgG, HRP-conjugate),freshly
        diluted in 5 % non-fat dry milk or 3 % BSA/TBST, for 1 hr at room temperature with 
    constant agitation.

    5. Wash the blotted membrane three times with TBST, 5 minutes each time.
    6. Use the detection method of your choice.
