Genetic target validation studies have demonstrated that the apoptosis signal-regulating kinase 1 (ASK1) represents an important target for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, cardiac diseases, and several neurodegenerative disorders. To identify small-molecule inhibitors of ASK1, we have developed a high-throughput screening-compatible, homogenous, biochemical assay using AlphaScreen technology. This novel assay design utilizes purified stress-activated ASK1 signalosome complex, and it monitors phosphorylation of its full-length native substrate, MKK6. The assay has been optimized in a 384-well format and validated by screening the Sigma LOPAC library. The results presented here demonstrate that the assay is sensitive and robust with a Z' factor value of 0.88±0.04 and a signal-to-background ratio of 11, indicating that this assay can be used to screen large chemical libraries to discover novel inhibitors of ASK1.
