Name: Late stage assay provider results from the probe development effort to identify inhibitors of the Plasmodium falciparum M18 Alanyl Aminopeptidase (PfM18AAP): fluorescence-based biochemical assay to identify inhibitors of malaria cell lysate.

Description:

Aminopeptidases (APs) are metalloproteases that cleave amino-terminal (N-terminal) amino acids during protein synthesis (1, 2) These enzymes are characterized in part by their post-translational removal of leucine, aspartate, proline, methionine, etc from proteins and peptides, in order that proteins are properly regulated, targeted for degradation, and trafficked within both animal and plant cells (3). As a result, these enzymes are involved in diverse processes, including meiosis (1), cellular senescence (1), blood pressure control (4, 5), angiogenesis (6), and inflammation (7). PfM18AAP is the sole aspartyl aminopeptidase (AAP) present in the genome of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum (8). It exhibits exopeptidase activity exclusively against the N-terminal acidic amino acids glutamate and aspartate (9-11), is found in all intra-erythrocytic stages of the parasite (9), and functions to complete the hydrolysis of host hemoglobin into amino acids for use in de novo protein synthesis by the parasite (12, 13). Studies demonstrating that genetic knockdown of PfM18AAP results in a lethal parasite phenotype (9), and that inhibitors of methionine (14) and leucine (12, 15) aminopeptidases prevent malaria growth in culture and hemoglobin degradation, suggest that these enzymes are essential for parasite survival. As a result, the identification of selective inhibitors of PfM18AAP would elucidate this enzyme's role in the P. falciparum lifecycle, and serve as potential therapeutic agents to control malaria infection.

Protocol
Assay Overview:
The purpose of this assay is to determine inhibitory activity of powder samples of compounds for PfM18AAP in a malarial cell lysate. In this assay, a fluorogenic peptide substrate (H-Glu-NHMec) that binds to the active site of PfM18AAP was used to quantify the activity of PfM18AAP in malaria cell lysate in the presence of inhibitor compounds. The rate of hydrolysis of this substrate in the presence of 5 uM inhibitor compounds was measured by monitoring the release of the -NHMec fluorogenic leaving group at an excitation wavelength of 370 nm and an emission wavelength of 460 nm. As designed, compounds that bind to PfM18AAP will compete with binding of the fluorogenic peptide substrate, resulting in a decrease in the release of the fluorogenic leaving group and a decrease in well fluorescence.
Protocol Summary:
Prior to the start of the assay, 5 uL of malaria cell lysate were dispensed into 96-well black non-binding surface plates. This was followed by 90 uL of assay buffer (25 mM Tris HCl, pH 7.5) and then 5 uL of compound. After 10 minutes, 100 uL of 100 uM fluorogenic peptide substrate (H-Glu-NHMec) in assay buffer was added to each well. The final concentrations in the reaction were 50 uM H-Glu-NHMec, 10 ug/ml malaria cell lysate, 25 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), and 5 uM compound. The test plate was immediately transferred to a Synergy HT fluorimeter with microplate reader and fluorescence was measured at an excitation wavelength of 370 nm and an emission wavelength of 460 nm at 60-second intervals for 30 minutes (30 readings). Each plate had 4 control wells in the eight outside columns with 2 wells containing the complete reaction mixture with carrier control (positive control) and 2 wells in which the malaria lysate had been left out (background).
The % inhibition for each well was then calculated as follows:
% Inhibition = 100 - % Enzyme Activity
% Enzyme Activity = ( Test - Background_Control ) / ( Positive_Control - Background_Control ) * 100
Where:
Test = RFU in wells with malaria lysate treated with test compound.
Background_Control = mean count of wells containing substrate in assay buffer only.
Positive_Control = mean count of wells containing malaria lysate with substrate but no compound added.
PubChem Activity Outcome and Score:
Compounds with greater than 50% inhibition of PfM18AAP in malaria cell lysate were considered active.
The reported PubChem Activity Score has been normalized to 100% observed inhibition. Negative % inhibition values are reported as activity score zero.
The PubChem Activity Score range for active compounds is 100-53, and for inactive compounds 49-0.
