Project description:Crosslinking and immunoprecipitation (CLIP) is increasingly used to map transcriptome-wide binding sites of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs). We developed a method for CLIP data analysis and applied it to compare 254 nm CLIP with PAR-CLIP, which involves crosslinking of photoreactive nucleotides with 365 nm UV light. We found small differences in the accuracy of these methods in identifying binding sites of HuR, a protein that binds low-complexity sequences and Argonaute 2, which has a complex binding specificity. We show that crosslink-induced mutations lead to single-nucleotide resolution for both PAR-CLIP and CLIP. Our results confirm the expectation from original CLIP publications that RNA-binding proteins do not protect sufficiently their sites under the denaturing conditions used during the CLIP procedure, and we show that extensive digestion with sequence-specific ribonucleases strongly biases the set of recovered binding sites. We finally show that this bias can be substantially reduced by milder nuclease digestion conditions. We performed duplicate experiments for each variant of the CLIP protocol (CLIP, PAR-CLIP), each protein (HuR, Ago2), and enzymatic digestion (complete T1 digestion, mild MNase digestion). In addition, we performed a single PAR-CLIP experiment with mild T1 digestion.
Project description:In the present study, we performed HITS-CLIP analysis for FUS using mouse brain to extensively characterize tits RNA-binding sites and functional roles in RNA metabolisms. We identified preferential binding of FUS to stem-and-loop structures but without any discernible consensus motifs. FUS was preferentially bound to introns and 3' untranslated regions, but the exon/intron boundaries were mostly devoid of FUS-tags. Analysis of position-dependence of FUS-binding sites in regulating inclusion and skipping of exons disclosed that FUS is bound broadly around the alternatively spliced exons. Among them, however, noticeable CLIP-tags were observed in the downstream introns. We also noticed that FUS occasionally binds to the antisense strands in the promoter regions. Global analysis of CLIP-tags and expression profiles revealed that binding of FUS to the promoter antisense regions downgregulates transcription of the sense strand.

Project description:AGO-PAR-CLIP was employed to identify microRNA binding sites in BCBL-1, a Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) infected B-cell line and DG75, a KSHV negative B-cell line as a control. By using our novel computational method (PARma) and differential analysis of PAR-CLIP data, highly accurate target sites of KSHV microRNAs can be defined.
