Summary: 

Looking for new targets in pain and cancer therapy, the transient receptor potential chan-nels (TRP-channels) gained a lot of interest during the last decade. The ligand-gated calcium channels play an important role in the perception of pain and temperature and are often dysregulated in tumor tissues. They have become appealing targets for Drug Discovery. Re-combinant cell lines which stably express different TRP-channels have been successfully used for lead identification and compound profiling.Looking for new targets in pain and cancer therapy, the transient receptor potential chan-nels (TRP-channels) gained a lot of interest during the last decade. The ligand-gated calcium channels play an important role in the perception of pain and temperature and are often dysregulated in tumor tissues. They have become appealing targets for Drug Discovery. Re-combinant cell lines which stably express different TRP-channels have been successfully used for lead identification and compound profiling.Assay ready cryopreserved aliquots prepared from these cell lines can be used instantly after thawing without prior cultivation. Here, we demonstrate that Assay Ready Cells prepared from TRP-channel expressing cell lines resemble the pharmacology of cells from continuous culture in different end-point assays. The cells were successfully qualified for plate-based fluorescent calcium-flux assays and for recording of activated ion channel currents using automated patch clamping.
