Monitoring Global Structural Changes and Specific Metal-Ion-Binding Sites in RNA by In-line Probing and Tb(III) Cleavage


Choudhary, Pallavi K; Gallo, Sofia; Sigel, Roland K O (2014). Monitoring Global Structural Changes and Specific Metal-Ion-Binding Sites in RNA by In-line Probing and Tb(III) Cleavage. In: Waldsich, C. RNA Folding. Wien: Humana Press, 143-158.

Abstract

In this chapter we describe the use of two methods, in-line probing as well as terbium(III) cleavage. Both methods can be applied to RNAs of any size, structure, and function. Aside from revealing directly metal ion-binding sites these techniques also provide structural information for longer RNA sequences that are out of range to be analyzed with other techniques such as NMR. The cleavage pattern derived from in-line probing experiments reflects local and overall conformational changes in RNA upon the addition of metal ions, metal complexes, or other ligands. On the other side, terbium(III) cleavage experiments are applied to locate specific metal ion-binding sites in RNA molecules.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
