      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 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 Gαi 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. Alternatively, sensitivity to pertussis toxin (PTX) was

      used as an indicator of possible Gαi proteins invovled in a signaling pathway.

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

      quantities to perform 20 assays.

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

      Assay Principle

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

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

      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 per10 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 27?-gauge syringe needle 3-4 times to shear the genomic DNA. 
      Clear          the  lysates by centrifugation for 10 minutes (12,000 x g at 4 °C).

      8. 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

      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 27?-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 Gαi
      proteins, whereas in vitro GTPγS loading could activate ~50 % of the Gαi proteins that can be

      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).

      Assay Procedure

      I. Active Gαi 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 Gαi monoclonal antibody (Cat. No. 26901) 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-Gαi monoclonal antibody (Cat. No. 26003), freshly diluted
      1:100 ~ 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-mouse 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.
