The drug receptor to screen against is attached to a resin bead that contains scintillant molecules. Binding of a radioactively labeled ligand to the receptor enables activation of the scintillant by released ␤-radiation, molecules in solution are unable to do so effectively. (B) Fluorescence resonance energy transfer. Two different fluorescent labels, if placed in a close proximity, can transfer excitation energy to one another by resonance. Emission of a photon of characteristic energy by the second labels is indicative of binding.
Such studies have resulted in the estimation that, on average, one third of the genes present in a microbial genome are essential for viability and even more for pathogenicity ( Johnston 1999). Unluckily, mutant strains of pathogens may not supply information concerning the susceptibility of a particular gene product to functional antagonism by a potential drug molecule. The applicability for drug target validation of mammalian knockouts (mostly mice) is disappointing. 1 Features of generally applicable target validation approaches Approach Information required Information source Selectivity Human/pathogen organism Speed/efficiency Limitations Gene disruption Genomic sequence Literature High Model mammalian organism ϩ Pathogen organism ϩϩϩ Slow Fast Moderate Technical proficiency, rodent model, compensatory mechanisms Stability of oligos, half-life of target protein Metabolic stability of ribozymes Antibody engineering and expression Antisense Partial cDNA cDNA database Variable Ribozymes Partial cDNA cDNA database Good Human cell line ϩϩϩ Pathogen organism ϩϩϩ Mammalian organism ϩ/Ϫ Cell lines ϩϩϩ Antibodies and intrabodies Protein/peptide sequence Amino acid sequencing or nucleotide sequence translation Good Cell lines ϩϩϩ Good Fast 12 Gábor Mikala and István Vályi-Nagy animals from targeted cell lines requires a minimum of 12–18 months and formidable expertise.
