If the radioligand is known to bind to two sites with different known affinities, the Cheng-Prusoff correction can be used with the two KD values and the two IC50 values to estimate the two Ki values, provided it is possible to link a given KD value with the equivalent IC50 value. If the radioligand itself appears to bind to a single site but a two-site fit has been obtained with an inhibitor, then either (1) the radioligand is not selective, in which case the Cheng-Prusoff correction is valid, or (2) the selectivity of the radioligand is too small to measure accurately, in which case there will be some error, probably small, in the estimated Ki values.
In addition the assay contains measures of nonspecific binding at some or all of the time points. In the design of the assay, the concentration of radioligand to be used has to be carefully considered. The choice depends on the information required. On one hand it is important to know the time course of binding of the radioligand concentration used in other studies such as inhibition assays (see below), a concentration which is often around the KD level or below. 7 and below), provided the nonspecific binding is not too high.
1 Adsorption of Ligands to Pipette Tips, Plastic and Glass This is a problem that is associated with certain peptides, proteins, and some hydrophobic and amphipathic compounds. The adsorption of the radioligand is readily detectable but that of competing ligands can be insidious. If 125I is the radioisotope, adsorption can be detected directly by γ-counting of the containers or pipette tips. For 3H and 35S, adsorption is detected by measurement of deviations between observed and expected levels of radioactivity in samples.
