The ONE-Glo™ + Tox Assay combines luciferase assay chemistry with a cell viability marker to better understand reporter gene expression in the context of cell health. The assay uses a two-step, addition-only process to make these measurements in a single well of a plate, negating the need to run parallel assays. The simple "add-mix-read" assay format and optimized reagents combine to create a flexible, automation-friendly assay that can be scaled to meet your needs.
In the first part of the assay, a nonlytic fluorescence-based method (CellTiter-Fluor™ Cell Viability Assay) is used to measure the relative number of live cells in culture. The CellTiter-Fluor™ Assay measures a conserved and constitutive protease activity within living cells. This live-cell protease activity is restricted to intact viable cells and is measured using a fluorogenic, cell-permeant peptide substrate (glycylphenylalanyl-aminofluorocoumarin; GF-AFC). The substrate enters intact cells where it is cleaved by the live-cell protease to generate a fluorescent signal proportional to the number of living cells. The live-cell protease becomes inactive upon loss of cell membrane integrity and leakage into the surrounding culture medium. Fluorescence of the free AFC fluorophore is measured with a microplate reader or CCD imager using an excitation wavelength of 380–400nm and emission wavelength of 505nm.
The second part of the assay uses the ONE-Glo™ Luciferase Assay System to quantify firefly luciferase gene expression from cells expressing the reporter. Ideally suited for high- and ultrahigh-throughput applications, the ONE-Glo™ Assay Reagent contains a fluoroluciferin substrate that gives increased stability and greater tolerance of sample components, and has less odor than standard luciferase assay reagents. Luminescence is measured with a microplate reader or CCD imager.

In the experiment shown here, 1 × 104 (96-well plate; Panel A) or 5 × 103 (384-well plate; Panel B) cells expressing NFAT response element were treated with serial titrations of ionomycin in the presence of PMA for 6 hours. At specific concentrations, ionomycin and PMA work cooperatively to stimulate NFAT-dependent gene expression. However, higher concentrations of ionomycin result in cytotoxicity seen as a decrease in viability (fluorescence). A decrease in reporter expression (luciferase) activity is also observed due to the increase in cytotoxicity.
