Abstract

Calcium signaling plays a major role in the function of cells. Measurement of intracellular calcium mobilization is a robust assay that can be performed in a high-throughput manner to study the effect of compounds on potential drug targets. Pharmaceutical companies frequently use calcium signaling assays to screen compound libraries on G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). In this chapter we describe the application of FLIPR technology to the evaluation of GPCR-induced calcium mobilization. We also include the implications of GPCR hetero-oligomerization and the identification of heteromeric receptors as novel drug targets on high-throughput calcium screening.
