Various assays have been employed to study the nuclear receptor/cofactor interactions. Coimmunoprecipitation protocols, both yeast and mammalian two-hybrid systems, and electrophoretic mobility shift/supershift assays are all commonly used. One of the most useful assays for studying direct protein-protein interactions is the glutathione-S-transferase "pulldown" assay. We have developed a high-throughput version of this assay that utilizes a filter microplate to allow parallel processing of many samples, significantly reducing the time and reagents required for the assay and increasing the sensitivity of the assay for weaker protein-protein interactions.
