Assays capable of detecting TRPML1 modulators for drug discovery

By Molly Rowlett, Industrial Placement Student, University of Bristol

We generated a stable cell line expressing the lysosomal channel TRPML1 at the cell surface. First we validated this on manual patch-clamp and went on to develop robust assays for our higher throughput screening platforms, Qube 384 and FLIPR Penta, which are capable of detecting TRIPML1 modulators for drug discovery.
