MPXNOMAD α1B-adrenoceptor Cell Line

MPXNOMAD Cells are cell lines stably co-expressing tag-free GPCRs and two Nomad Biosensors to monitor G-protein and β-arrestin modulation. Each vial of MPXNOMAD α1B-adrenoceptor Cell Line contains HEK293 cells stably expressing the following constructs:

  • human α1B-adrenoceptor with no tag
  • Calcium Nomad Biosensor (Green Fluorescence)
  • β-arrestin Nomad Biosensor (Red Fluorescence)

MPXNOMAD α1B-adrenoceptor Cell Line allows to assay compounds analyzing both signalling pathways involving receptor activation; G protein by Calcium flux and β-arrestin recruitment, hence allowing biased activity studies. When an agonist binds to ADRA1B a G protein is activated which, in turn, triggers a cellular response mediated by calcium and a subsequent internalization mediated by ß-Arrestin. This leads to an increase of fluorescence intensity of both β-Arrestin and Ca2+ biosensors. So, the activity can be easily quantified on living cells in a dose-response manner by fluorescence emission in a microplate reader.

The alpha-1B adrenergic receptor (α1B adrenoreceptor), also known as ADRA1B, is member of Alpha-1-adrenergic receptors (alpha-1-ARs) family. This gene encodes the alpha-1B-adrenergic receptor, which induces neoplastic transformation when transfected into NIH 3T3 fibroblasts and other cell lines. They activate mitogenic responses and regulate growth and proliferation of many cells. Gq/G11 family transducers mediates the primary transduction mechanism of this receptor, so calcium flux measurement allows to monitor receptor activation. Risperidone, an α1B-adrenoceptor antagonist, is an antipsychotic drug to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability associated with autism. MPXNOMAD α1B-adrenoceptor Cell Line from Innoprot allows the measurement of the activity and potency of ligands, such as epinephrine.
