Aberrant regulation of RNA stability has an important role in many disease states. Deregulated post-transcriptional modulation, such as that governed by microRNAs targeting linear sequence elements in messenger RNAs, has been implicated in the progression of many cancer types. A defining feature of RNA is its ability to fold into structures. However, the roles of structural mRNA elements in cancer progression remain unexplored. Here we performed an unbiased search for post-transcriptional modula ...[more]
Project description:In order to identify TARBP2 binding sites on endogenous RNA, we performed HITS-CLIP on a myc-tagged TARBP2 expressing cell-line (transient transfection) Cells were transfected with tagged TARBP2 vector (Origene) and 48-hr post-transfection, they were subjected to the HITS-CLIP procedure (Licatalosi D, et al. 2008, Nature 456:464-U22)
Project description:Includes HITS-CLIP and PAR-CLIP of AEG1, including negative controls Overall design: AEG-1 bound RNA profiles examinated by HITS-CLIP and PAR-CLIP, coupled with deep sequencing, in duplicate for HITS-CLIP, using Illumina HiSeq.
