27.06.2017 | Patchliner Webinar: "New Dynamics in Automated Patch Clamp"

Patchliner Webinar: "New Dynamics in Automated Patch Clamp"

Date: 27th, June 2017, 16:00 CEST
Registration: free. Register here.

Speaker 1:
Dr. Teun P. de Boer, Associate Professor
Department of Medical Physiology, Division Heart & Lungs, University Medical Center Utrecht. Yalelaan 50, 3584 CM Utrecht, The Netherlands
Title: Dynamic clamping on a Patchliner: adding virtual IK1 channels to cardiomyocytes
Abstract: Human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hPSC-CM) are an interesting source of cells for safety pharmacology, but there are caveats that have to be taken into account. A typical property of hPSC-CM is automaticity, the cardiomyocytes beat spontaneously, resembling cells in the sinoatrial node of the heart. The spontaneous beating is due to lack of IK1 ion channels, which normally assure a stable resting membrane potential in cardiomyocytes. Work by our group has demonstrated that the depolarized state of hPSC-CM limits their usefulness in assays aimed at detecting proarrhythmic properties of drugs (Jonsson et al., 2012, PMID: 22353256).
Dynamic clamping can provide virtual, simulated IK1 channels to a real biological hPSC-CM in a patch clamping experiment. Key benefits of this approach include full control of the added IK1 conductance to each cardiomyocyte, it can be applied to any hPSC-CM source and it can be coupled to automated patch clamping machines. In this webinar I will discuss our work on using the dynamic clamping technique with a Patchliner.

Speaker 2:
Maria Giustina Rotordam, PhD student of Nanion Technologies GmbH, Munich, Germany
Title: Activation of hKCA3.1 by internal calcium exchange.
Abstract: The intermediate-conductance calcium-activated K+ channel, also known as KCa3.1, is a member of the large family of potassium channels gated by calcium. It can be distinguished from the other calcium-activated K+ channels by differences in channel conductance, calcium sensitivity, voltage dependence and pharmacological properties.
It is primarily expressed in peripheral tissues, including those of the hematopoietic system, colon, lung, placenta, and pancreas and it is thought to be a promising therapeutic target for a variety of health disorders including sickle cell anaemia and immunological disorders. The Ca2+-binding protein, calmodulin (CaM), is required for the activation of hKCa3.19. The Patchliner was used to perform a biophysical and pharmacological characterization of hKCa3.1 channels expressed in CHO cells. hKCa3.1 was activated by exchanging the internal solution to a solution containing free-Ca2+ and blocked by external application of non-selective (BaCl2 ) and selective (TRAM-34) inhibitors with an IC50 value consistent with that reported in the literature.
CHO cells stably expressing hKCa3.1 (Catalog # CT6123) were kindly supplied by Charles River.

10.02.2017 | Biophysics Satellite Meeting: Drug Discovery for Ion Channels XVII

Venue: New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Louisiana, USA

Room 210; 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

We are proud to be sponsor of this Meeting.

Meet Niels Fertig, Andrea Brueggemann, Frank Henrichsen, Michael George, Maria Barthmes, Markus Rapedius, Rodolfo Haedo and many more.

Abstract: "Ion channels are an important class of therapeutic drug targets, and mutations in ion channel genes are found to be responsible for an increasing number of diseases. While conventional electrophysiological techniques permit the most detailed and direct study of ion channel function, they are limited due to the manual nature of the method and their low throughput. Because of this, ion channels remain an underrepresented target class for drug discovery. The advent of higher throughput automated electrophysiology systems has begun to change the face of ion channel drug discovery. Since the inaugural "Drug Discovery for Ion Channels" satellite meeting, there have been many advances in ion channel drug discovery including new instrumentation and techniques. For this year, we propose to continue the "Satellite Meeting" tradition at the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting to review the advances in automated electrophysiology and other emerging technologies and their impact on ion channel drug discovery. This year's meeting will highlight presentations from users of automated electrophysiology instrumentation as well as other speakers in the field of ion channel drug discovery, including several academic speakers."

The preliminary speaker list include:

Dr. Jen Pan, Associate Director (The Broad Institute)
"High throughput electrophysiology to annotate channel functions in the context of disease genetics"

Dr. Jun Chen, Senior Scientist (Genentech)

Venue: Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington DC, USA

Come to our booth #1311 and meet Tim Strassmaier.

 

We will present a joint poster together with Axiogenesis. Title: "Non-integrating, transient optogenetic modification of human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes using ChR2 and GCaMP6f mRNAs". Read the abstract here.

 

Do not miss the Tutorial of our collaboration partner Genedata on Tuesday, February 7th at 9:30 AM - 10:15 AM, room: 143B:

Title: "Effortlessly scaling up automated patch clamp research with Genedata screener".

Abstract: "This tutorial will show how the capabilities of Genedata Screener for Ion Channel Screening have been expanded with our latest software release. Screener now allows effortless scale-up of automated patch clamp (APC) research with improved experimental overview and comparisons within and across experiments. These new capabilities will be exemplified with our latest Ready-to-Run integration: the Nanion SyncroPatch 384PE. We will show how all QC parameters, compound information and cursor names are directly imported, allowing automatic and coherent evaluation of data, and thereafter present prototypical assays from a compound screening and safety viewpoint, with titrations performed both with cumulative addition and across wells. We will also outline further processing capabilities, e.g. specific control wells enabling per-sweep normalization, before we conclude by providing an enterprise workflow perspective for modern ion channel pharma research."

 

A joint poster will be presented by Genedata and AstraZeneca showing data of the SyncroPatch 384PE.

Title: "A new analysis pipeline to improve assessment of cardiac liability in high throughput electrophysiology screens with routine MoA detection for slow onset compounds". Read the abstract here.

Prof. Carlos Villalobos will show in his presentation his data on Icrac and Isoc recordings on the Port-a-Patch Instrument.

Statement of Prof. Carlos Villalobos about the Port-a-Patch:

"We have used Nanion´s Port-a-patch for recording endogenous Icrac, the small calcium-release activated currents that are becoming very important in cell fate and cancer hallmarks. In addition, measurements were carried out in primary cultures of human, coronary, vascular-smooth muscle cells, a very difficult cell type to patch, and several normal and tumoral, epithelial cells. In the beginning I was very skeptical, because the currents are extremely small. However, the results were excellent and clear cut. It is possible to investigate the pharmacology and molecular biology of these channels during the phenotypic switches related to transdifferentiation, aging or tumorogenesis".

Nanions poster will be presented during the Conference. Title: "In- depth understanding of cell physiology with complementary Automated patch clamp, extracellular field potential and impedance recordings"
