Split-luciferase complementation to measure soluble epoxide hydrolase dimerization

Case ID:
1803
Web Published:
1/29/2015
Description:
Novel assay and technique to monitor the effect of mutations on dimerization. The enzyme soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) forms a catalytically active dimer with predominantly cytosolic localization. Disrupting dimerization, on the other hand, reduces sEH hydrolase activity and shifts the sub-cellular localization of sEH to peroxisomes. The peroxisomal localization of sEH may contribute to the protective role in a number of different diseases such as ischemia.  To identify small molecular inhibitors of sEH dimerization, a novel assay was developed using a split-firefly luciferase strategy.
