1.  A Simple, No-Wash Cell Adhesion–Based High-Throughput Assay for the Discovery of Small-Molecule Regulators of the Integrin CD11b/CD18 
Journal of biomolecular screening  2007;12(3):406-417.
The leukocyte-specific integrin CD11b/CD18 plays a key role in the biological function of these cells and represents a validated therapeutic target for inflammatory diseases. Currently, the low affinity interaction between CD11b/CD18 integrin and its respective ligand poses a challenge in the development of cell-based adhesion assays for the high-throughput screening (HTS) environment. Here the authors describe a simple cell-based adhesion assay that can be readily used for HTS for the discovery of functional regulators of CD11b/CD18. The assay consistently produces acceptable Z′ values (> 0.5) for HTS. After testing the assay using 2 established blocking antibodies as reference biologicals, the authors performed a proof-of-concept primary screen using a library of 6612 compounds and identified both agonist and antagonist hits.
