How it works

Phospho-STAT1 (Tyr701) assay principle

The Phospho-STAT1 (Tyr701) assay measures STAT1 when phosphorylated at Tyr701. Contrary to Western Blot, the assay is entirely plate-based and does not require gels, electrophoresis or transfer. The Phospho-STAT1 (Tyr701) assay uses 2 labeled antibodies: one with a donor fluorophore, the other one with an acceptor. The first antibody is selected for its specific binding to the phosphorylated motif on the protein, the second for its ability to recognize the protein independent of its phosphorylation state. Protein phosphorylation enables an immune-complex formation involving both labeled antibodies and which brings the donor fluorophore into close proximity to the acceptor, thereby generating a FRET signal. Its intensity is directly proportional to the concentration of phosphorylated protein present in the sample, and provides a means of assessing the protein’s phosphorylation state under a no-wash assay format.



Phospho-STAT1 (Tyr701) 2-plate assay protocol

The 2 plate protocol involves culturing cells in a 96-well plate before lysis then transferring lysates to a 384-well low volume detection plate before adding phospho-STAT1 (Tyr701) HTRF detection reagents. This protocol enables the cells' viability and confluence to be monitored.



Phospho-STAT1 (Tyr701) 1-plate assay protocol

Detection of Phosphorylated STAT1 (Tyr701) with HTRF reagents can be performed in a single plate used for culturing, stimulation and lysis. No washing steps are required. This HTS designed protocol enables miniaturization while maintaining robust HTRF quality.



Assay validation

HTRF assay compared to western blot using phospho-STAT1 cellular assays on human HeLa cells

HeLa cells were grown in a T175 flask at 37 °C, 5% CO2 for 48h. Cells were then stimulated with IFNa for 20 min. After medium removal, the cells were lysed with 3mL of supplemented lysis buffer for 30 min at room temperature. Soluble fractions were then collected after 10 min centrifugation. Serial dilutions of the cell lysate were performed in the supplemented lysis buffer and 16 µL of each dilution were dispensed and analyzed side-by-side by Western-blot and by HTRF. For each cell density tested, the fluorescence ratio closely matched the western blot band intensity, demonstrating the reliability of HTRF as an analytical technique for the measurement of phopsho STAT1




Validation of phospho STAT1-Y701 on human & murine cell lines

IFNa was used to induce phosphorylation of STAT1 in mouse NIH 3T3 and human HeLa cells. NIH-3T3 & Hela cells plated at different cell densities, were stimulated with 2.5µg/mL of IFNa for 20 minutes. After a lysis step using 50 µL of supplemented lysis buffer, 16 µL of lysate were transferred into a 384-well low volume white microplate before the addition of 4 µL of the HTRF phospho-STAT1 detection reagents. The HTRF signal was recorded after an overnight incubation. The graph display the biological assay window corresponding to IFNa-stimulated over unstimulated conditions.



Detection of phospho STAT1 on HeLa cells: stimulation kinetic

IFNa was used to induce phosphorylation of STAT1 in HeLa cells. 200,000 cells were plated in a 96well plate, then stimulated with increasing IFNa concentrations for various times (10, 20 30 and 60 minutes). After cell lysis with 50 µL of supplemented lysis buffer, 16 µL of lysate were transferred into a 384-well low volume white microplate before the addition of 4 µL of the HTRF phospho-STAT1 detection reagents. The HTRF signal was recorded after an overnight incubation. In these experimental conditions the optimal stimulation time was determined at 20 minutes of IFNa.



HTRF total-STAT1 assay used to check the phosphorylation status of STAT1 on murine and human cells

After 20 minutes stimulation with increasing IFNa concentrations, NIH 3T3 & Hela cells (200,000 cells/96well plate) were lysed with 50 µL of supplemented lysis buffer and incubated for 30 min at RT under gentle shaking. For phospho- STAT1 detection (blue curve), 16 µL of lysate were transferred into a 384-well low volume white microplate, followed by 4 µL of the HTRF phospho-STAT1 detection reagents For total STAT1 detection (red curve), 16µl of lysate were transferred into a 384-well low volume white, followed by 4 µL of the HTRF Total-STAT1 detection reagents. HTRF signals were recorded after an overnight incubation. Note that the HeLa cells display better potency of IFNa compared to NIH3T3 cells.



Simplified pathway

Transcriptional activator STAT1 involved in the JAK/STAT pathway

STAT1 is an important transcriptional activator involved in the JAK/STAT pathway which is activated by interferon I class, growth factors or chemokines. After stimulation, phosphorylated STAT1 dimers bind to Interferon Stimulated Gene Factor 3 complex. Then STAT1 proteins translocate into the nucleus and activate the transcription of genes associated to cell survival, viability or pathogen response. In response to IFNγ, STAT1 forms homodimers or heterodimers with STAT3 that bind to the GAS (Interferon-Gamma-Activated Sequence) promoter element. In response to either IFNα or IFNß, STAT1 forms heterodimer with STAT2 that bind the Interferon-Stimulated Response Element (ISRE).
