Adipocytes are important regulators of vertebrate energy stores, in part through the storage of dietary fat (triglyceride) that is mobilized via lipolysis during fasting states for use by tissues such as heart and skeletal muscle (1, 2). However, in chronic conditions of overnutrition, such as obesity and lipid storage disorders, excess intracellular lipid accumulation and reduced lipolysis leads to cellular lipotoxicity, which contributes to diabetes, atherosclerosis, and cardiomyopathy (2, 3). The metabolism of cellular lipid is regulated in part by protein-protein interactions near the surface of intracellular lipid droplets. In adipocytes lipolysis is inhibited by the interaction of a protein called abhydrolase domain-containing 5 (ABHD5) with the lipid droplet scaffold protein perilipin A (PLIN). In cells that do not express PLIN, such as myocytes, lipolysis is blocked by similar interactions of ABHD5 with myocyte lipid droplet protein (MLDP) (4). Studies showing reduced lipotoxicity following Plin overexpression (5, 6), combined with population studies identifying ABHD5 mutations as a cause of the lipid storage disease Chanarin-Dorfman syndrome (7), suggest that activating lipolysis by blocking interactions of ABHD5 with PLIN or MLDP will increase lipid clearance from adipocytes and other cells, thereby reducing lipotoxicity. As a result, compounds that inhibit these protein interactions may have therapeutic potential for lipid disorders such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease (8).

The purpose of this biochemical assay is to determine whether available powder samples of compounds identified as possible ABHD5-MLDP interaction inhibitor probe candidates are nonselective, as determined by inhibition of HNF4 dimerization. HNF4 is a nuclear receptor/ transcription factor that binds DNA as an homodimer. This assay monitors HNF4 dimerization using luciferase protein complementation. This assay determines HNF4 dose response curves. Any compound active in this assay will not be pursued.
In this biochemical protein complementation assay, HNF4 fused to either the C-terminus of luciferase (HNF4-LucC) or to the N-terminus of luciferase (HNF4-LucN) are incubated in the presence of test compounds. HNF4 dimerization reconstitutes full length luciferase, leading to an increase in well luminescence. As designed, compounds that inhibit HNF4 dimerization will prevent luciferase reconstitution, thereby preventing an increase in well luminescence. Compounds are tested in triplicate using a 10-point, 1:3 dilution series, starting at a nominal test concentration of 40 uM.
Prior to the start of the assay 2.5 uL of protein suspension containing recombinant HNF4-LucC were dispensed into each well of 1536-well microtiter plates. Test compounds or DMSO alone were then added to the appropriate wells. The assay was started by adding 2.5 uL of lysate containing recombinant HNF4-LucN protein. The plates were incubated for 4 hours at 25 C. Next, the assay was stopped by dispensing 5 uL of Coelenterazine reagent to each well, followed by incubation at room temperature for 30 minutes. Well luminescence was measured on the ViewLux plate reader.
The percent inhibition for each compound was calculated as follows:
%_Inhibition = ( ( Test_Compound - Median_Low_Control ) / ( Median_High_Control - Median_Low_Control ) ) * 100
Test_Compound is defined as wells containing test compound.
Low_Control is defined as wells containing DMSO.
High_Control is defined as wells containing 25 uM Trans-chalcone.
For each test compound, percent inhibition was plotted against compound concentration. A four parameter equation describing a sigmoidal dose-response curve was then fitted with adjustable baseline using Assay Explorer software (Accelrys Inc). The reported IC50 values were generated from fitted curves by solving for the X-intercept value at the 50% inhibition level of the Y-intercept value. In cases where the highest concentration tested (i.e. 40 uM) did not result in greater than 50% inhibition, the IC50 was determined manually as greater than 40 uM.
PubChem Activity Outcome and Score:
Compounds with an IC50 greater than 10 uM were considered inactive. Compounds with an IC50 equal to or less than 10 uM were considered active.
Any compound with a percent activity value < 50% at all test concentrations was assigned an activity score of zero. Any compound with a percent activity value >= 50% at any test concentration was assigned an activity score greater than zero. Activity score was then ranked by the potency, with the most potent compounds assigned the highest activity scores.
The PubChem Activity Score range for inactive compounds is 0-0. There are no active compounds.

Due to the increasing size of the MLPCN compound library, this assay may have been run as two or more separate campaigns, each campaign testing a unique set of compounds. All data reported were normalized on a per-plate basis. Possible artifacts of this assay can include, but are not limited to: dust or lint located in or on wells of the microtiter plate, and compounds that modulate well luminescence. All test compound concentrations reported above and below are nominal; the specific test concentration(s) for a particular compound may vary based upon the actual sample provided by the MLSMR. The MLSMR was not able to provide all compounds selected for testing in this assay.
