  • Assay Buffer: 0.1 M NaOAc, pH 4.0
  • Gel Running Buffer: 40 mM Tris, 1 mM EDTA, adjust to pH 8.0 with acetic acid

  • Recombinant Human Heparan Sulfate 3-O-Sulfotransferase 1/HS3ST1 (rhHS3ST1) (Catalog # 5968-ST)
  • 8% SDS-PAGE (approximately 15 cm x 20 cm, 20 lanes per gel)
  • Recombinant Human Syndecan-4 (rhSyndecan-4) (Catalog # 2918-SD)
  • PAP35S (prepared in-house using the PAPS Synthesis Kit (Catalog # EA005), ~1 μM and ~2 x 106 cpm/μL)
  • Gel loading buffer: 0.15 M Tris, 20.8 mM SDS, 1.15 M Glycine, 174 µM Bromophenol Blue, 30% Glycerol
  • Blotting paper (Fisher Sci., Catalog # 05-714-4)
  • Gel dryer
  • Glogos® II autorad markers (Stratagene, Cat. # 420202) or equiv.
  • Blue sensitive medical X-ray film
  • X-ray film cassette
  • Film developer (Konica SRX-101A Medical Film Processor) or equiv.
  • Liquid scintillation counter (Beckman Coulter, Model # LS5000TD) or equiv.
  • Liquid scintillation fluid (Beckman Coulter, Catalog # 141349) or equiv.
  1. Mix rhSyndecan4, rhHS3ST1 and PAP35S at concentrations of 0.133 mg/mL, 0.067 mg/mL, and 0.067 μM respectively in Labeling Buffer.
  2. Incubate the mixture at room temperature overnight (some precipitation may occur).
  3. Dilute rhHPSE to 66.7, 6.67, 3.34, 1.67, 0.667, 0.334, 0.0667, and 0.00667 µg/mL in Assay Buffer.
  4. Combine 15 µL of rhHPSE at each dilution with 15 µL of radiolabeled reaction mix. Include a control containing 15 µL Assay Buffer and 15 µL reaction mix. Incubate at 37 °C for 20 min.
  5. Add 15 µL gel loading buffer to each reaction. Mix.
  6. Load 30 µL of each rxn per lane on a gel. Leave empty lanes between samples. Run at 200 V for 35 min.
  7. Transfer gel onto blotting paper and dry with gel dryer for 1 hr or until fully dry.
  8. Affix two autorad markers to the blotting paper next to the dried gel.
  9. In a darkroom expose dried gel to X-ray film by enclosing overnight in a cassette. Develop the following day.
  10. Using the dried gel, begin marking regions to be cut out for scintillation counting. Mark a horizontal line across the top of the entire gel just under the bottom of the wells.
  11. Using the developed film as an overlay, mark a second line just above the loading dye migration which should correspond to a region between substrate and cleaved product. Note: It will be easiest to use the highest enzyme containing lanes to identify the product. For the control, identify the empty region where the product would appear.
  12. Draw a third line just below where the labeled product migrated (ignore any free sulfate which will appear in equivalent quantity in all lanes and will have migrated the furthest).
  13. The area between the top two lines is considered to contain the labeled starting material and between the bottom two lines is the compact cleavage product resulting from the reaction.
  14. Mark vertical lines distinguishing one lane (reaction condition) from another.
  15. Cut each region (two per lane) and place each into a separate liquid scintillation vial.
  16. Add 5 mL liquid scintillation fluid to each vial and count the vials for 35S.
  17. Determine the amount of rhHPSE required for 50% cleavage by plotting % cleavage vs. ng of rhHPSE with 4-PL fitting.
Per Reaction:
  • Syndecan-4: 2 μg
  • rhHPSE: 1000, 100, 50, 25, 10, 5, 1 and 0.1 ng

Heparanase (HPSE) selectively cleaves heparan sulfate at specific sites on heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) (1, 2, 3, 4). The enzyme is synthesized as an inactive 65 kDa proenzyme that is secreted via the Golgi apparatus and associates with the cell membrane through interaction with HSPGs (5). It is then endocytosed and transferred to lysosomes (6) where cathepsin L activates it by removing an internal inhibitory peptide, forming a heterodimer composed of an 8 kDa and a 50 kDa subunit (7, 8). Under certain stimuli, the active enzyme is transferred back to the cell surface, where it participates in extracellular matrix degradation and remodeling (9). HPSE facilitates cell migration associated with metastasis, wound healing and inflammation (10). An increase in its activity is associated with an increase in VEGF activity, which further enhances angiogenesis (11). HPSE also enhances shedding of syndecans and increases endothelial invasion and angiogenesis in myelomas (12). It acts as a procoagulant by increasing the generation of activation factor X in the presence of tissue factor and activation factor VII (13). In addition, it increases cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix (ECM), independent of its enzymatic activity (14). HPSE is highly expressed in placenta and spleen and weakly expressed in lymph node, thymus, peripheral blood leukocytes, bone marrow, endothelial cells, fetal liver and tumor tissues (15). The enzyme activity of recombinant human HPSE was assayed using 35S-labeled recombinant syndecan 4 (16).
