|Assay Description:||Three human melanoma cell lines were treated in 2 replicates with 1 dose of Vemurafenib in combination with DMSO or 3 doses of each of 41 compounds in a chromatin-targeting library (LINCS 3 Chromatin Targeting Library). This dataset presents the number of nuclei assayed and the mean intensity measurements for 2 protein readouts (KI-67 and NGFR) extracted from microscopy images across each condition.|
1. Cells were seeded at the following densities in 96-well plates (Corning, cat. #3603) and grown in full growth media: WM-115, 8,000 cells per well; COLO 858, 7,000 cells per well; and A-375, 4,500 cells per well. Cell counts were based on measurements using a Countess II FL Automated Cell Counter (Life Technologies).|
2. After 24 hr of normal growth, cells were treated with either DMSO or 3 different doses (0.11, 0.53 and 2.67 μM) of each of 41 compounds in the LINCS 3 Chromatin Targeting Library (lincs.hms.harvard.edu/db/libraries/ChromTargeting-1) using previously prepared 384-well dilution plates and a Seiko pin transfer robot system.
3. A-375 and WM-115 cells were then treated with 1 μM Vemurafenib, and COLO 858 cells were treated with 0.32 μM Vemurafenib using an HP D300 Digital Dispenser.
4. After 48 hr, cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde for 20 min at room temperature, washed with PBS with 0.1% Tween 20 (Sigma-Aldrich) (PBS-T), permeabilized in methanol for 10 min at room temperature, rewashed with PBS-T, and blocked in Odyssey Blocking Buffer for 1 hr at room temperature.
5. Cells were incubated overnight at 4°C with primary antibodies in Odyssey Blocking Buffer. The following primary antibodies were used at the specified dilutions: anti-KI-67, 1:400, and anti-NGFR, 1:1600.
6. Following treatment with primary antibodies, cells were stained with donkey anti-rabbit or anti-mouse IgG secondary antibodies labeled with Alexa Fluor 647 and Alexa Fluor 488, respectively, that had been diluted 1:2000 in Odyssey Blocking Buffer. Cells were washed once in PBS-T and once in PBS and were then incubated in 250 ng/mL Hoechst 33342 and 1:800 Whole Cell Stain (blue; Thermo Scientific) solutions for 20 min.
7. Cells were washed twice with PBS and imaged with a 10x objective on an Operetta imaging system (PerkinElmer). Nine to 11 sites were imaged in each well.
8. Image segmentation, analysis and signal intensity quantification were performed using Acapella software (PerkinElmer). Hoechst 33342 and whole cell staining were used for image segmentation. The Alexa Fluor 488 and 647 signal intensity data for the proteins of interest are presented as the mean intensity of each signal averaged across the 9 to 11 sites imaged in each well.
