Facile Conversion of FP to TR-FRET Assays using Terbium Chelates:Nuclear Receptor Competitive Binding Assays as Examples

Abstract:

Time-resolved FRET (TR-FRET) assays offer advantages over fluorescence polarization (FP) assays including reduced optical interference from compound autofluorescence or precipitation, and a greater ability to resolve potencies of tight-binding ligands. Here, we demonstrate the facile conversion of FP assays to a TR-FRET format using nuclear receptor ligand binding assays as examples.

Keywords: Fluorescence polarization, Time-resolved fret, Terbium chelates, Nuclear receptors
