Small molecular weight drug-protein interaction measured with MP-SPR

Application Note #144

''Kinetic evaluation of indomethacin binding. Different concentrations of analyte (coloured curves) and fit (black curves).''

The interaction of a small molecular weight drug (indomethacin) to Human serum albumin (HSA) was measured with label-free Multi-Parametric Surface Plasmon Resonance (MP-SPR). HSA was attached to a sensor surface with amine coupling chemistry. Affinity (KD) and kinetic constants (ka and kd) of indomethacin interaction were determined with TraceDrawer™ for MP-SPR Navi™. Premium quality kinetic data was ensured using PureKinetics™ feature that separates bulk effect from binding kinetics.
