Here we demonstrate the detection of GLP-1R binding through the incorporation of a homogeneous cell-based binding assay using HTRF Tag-lite® technology. The assay resembles classical radiometric ligand receptor binding, except that it uses a red-emitting labeled ligand and transfected cells. When the ligand binds to the receptor, an increase in HTRF signal may be measured. Competitive binding of non-labeled ligands or inhibitors causes a subsequent decrease.
The assay was automated using a non-contact liquid dispenser commonly used in high throughput settings.
