NTR: icSHAPE Assay #852
So - we are working with a new High Throughput Sequencing Assay: icSHAPE, that captures RNA secondary structure.
Editor preferred term: "icSHAPE"
Alternative terms: SHAPE-Seq, NET-Seq
Textual definition: icSHAPE provides accurate predictions of RNA-protein interactions and m6A modification in vivo by combining SHAPE-Seq with click chemistry for enhanced isolation. , Secondary RNA structures are modified by the addition of a custom 2-methylnicotinic acid imidazolide (NAI) probe, termed NAI-N3. The modifed RNA is marked selectively with dibenzocyclooxtyne (DIBO)-biotin through copper-free click chemistry, enabling purification by streptavidin pull-down. Briefly, NAI-N3 is added to RNA in vivo to mark it selectively for DIBO-biotin tagging. The cells are lysed, the RNA is poly(A)-selected, tagged with DIBO-biotin, and fragmented. The RNA strands are 3'-end-repaired with T4 PNK and ligated to 3' adapters. After size-selection, the RNA strands are reverse-transcribed, and both the RNA and first-strand cDNA are captured on streptavidin beads. Another cDNA size-selection step is carried out before circularization and PCR amplification. The samples are ready for NGS.
