Transcriptome-wide discovery of microRNA binding sites in human brain by Ago2 HITS-CLIP [Ago2-miRNA complexes]

ABSTRACT: Here, seeking to gain insight into the array of transcripts engaged with miRNAs in human brain, we performed HITS-CLIP to profile transcriptome-wide Ago2:RNA interactions in a panel of eleven post-mortem adult human brain samples harvested from adult motor cortex and cingulate gyrus, regions associated with movement and psychiatric disorders . High-throughput sequencing of RNA isolated by crosslinking immunoprecipitation (HITS-CLIP) Eleven post-mortem adult human brain tissues were subjected to ultraviolet radiation to crosslink proteins with nucleic acids, and HITS-CLIP was performed as previously described by Chi et al Nature. 2009 Jul 23;460(7254):479-86 using an anti-Ago2 polyclonal antibody and some additional modifications.

The orchestration of brain function requires complex gene regulatory networks that are modulated, in part, by microRNAs (miRNAs). These noncoding RNAs associate with argonaute (Ago) proteins in order to direct posttranscriptional gene suppression via base pairing with target transcripts. In order to better understand how miRNAs contribute to human-specialized brain processes and neurological phenotypes, identifying their targets is of paramount importance. Here, we address the latter by profilin  ...[more]
