Hypotonia-cystinuria syndrome (HCS) and 2p21 deletion syndrome are debilitating and poorly understood diseases, both involving deletion of the gene encoding prolyl oligopeptidase-like enzyme (PREPL), a member of the prolyl oligopeptidase (POP) family of serine peptidases (1). Saghatelian and colleagues have developed an advanced LC-MS-based peptide metabolite profiling platform that allows linkage of enzymes with their endogenous substrates and establishment of their participation in specific biochemical networks; however, doing so requires selective chemical tools to functionally perturb the enzymes of interest (2). They used this technology to annotate the uncharacterized enzyme KIAA1363 (3) and to identify a series of peptide substrates in the kidney for another POP family member, DPP4 (4). Importantly, substrate identification for KIAA1363 was only accomplished through the application of a selective small molecule KIAA1363 inhibitor, as constitutive inhibition produced widespread metabolic disturbances (3). Initial attempts at identifying the substrate specificity of PREPL have not been successful. Physicochemical properties of PREPL suggest that endogenous protein-protein interactions with PREPL might lead to an active form of PREPL that cannot be recapitulated in vitro. Therefore, the ability to target PREPL in vivo is a necessary step in understanding the function of this important peptidase enzyme. Development of selective inhibitors of PREPL would provide crucial tools to advance understanding of the physiological and pathological roles of this critical enzyme and might reveal new treatment possibilities for HCS and 2p21 deletion syndrome (5).

The purpose of this assay is to determine whether cherry-picked test compounds identified as active in the fluopol ABPP HTS assay (AID 2803) can inhibit purified, recombinant mouse Prepl using an activity-based proteomic profiling (ABPP) assay. In this assay, recombinant mouse Prepl is incubated with test compound followed by reaction with a rhodamine-conjugated fluorophosphonate (FP-Rh) activity-based probe. The reaction products are separated by SDS-PAGE and visualized in-gel using a flatbed fluorescence scanner. The percentage activity remaining is determined by measuring the integrated optical density (IOD) of the bands. As designed, test compounds that act as inhibitors will prevent enzyme-probe interactions, thereby decreasing the proportion of bound fluorescent probe, giving lower fluorescence intensity in the band in the gel. Percent inhibition is calculated relative to a DMSO (no compound) control.
Prepl (17 uL, 117 nM, final concentration 100 nM) in assay buffer (PBS with 0.012% Pluronic detergent) was preincubated with test compound (1 uL of a 400 uM stock in DMSO, final concentration 20 uM) or DMSO only for 15 minutes at room temperature. FP-Rh (2 uL of a 1 uM stock in DMSO, final concentration 100 nM) was then added and allowed to react for 7 minutes at room temperature, whereupon the reaction was quenched by the addition of 10 uL SDS-PAGE loading buffer, resolved by SDS-PAGE and visualized by in-gel fluorescent scanning. The percentage activity remaining was determined by measuring the integrated optical density of the target band relative to a DMSO-only (no compound) control.
The % inhibition was then calculated as follows:
%_Inhibition = ( 1 - ( IOD_Test_Compound - Median_IOD_Low_Control ) / ( Median_IOD_High_Control - Median_IOD_Low_Control ) ) * 100
Test_Compound is defined as target treated with test compound.
High_Control is defined as target treated with DMSO only (no compound).
Low_Control is defined as background in a blank region of the gel.
PubChem Activity Outcome and Score:
Compounds with greater than 50% inhibition were considered active. Compounds with less than or equal to 50% inhibition were considered inactive.
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 100-50, and for inactive compounds 47-0.
