Analysis of lncRNA-Protein Interactions by RNA-Protein Pull-Down Assays and RNA Immunoprecipitation (RIP)


Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have important roles in shaping chromatin by targeting chromatin-modifying enzymes to distinct genomic sites. This section covers two methods to analyze lncRNA-protein interactions. The RNA-protein pull-down assays use either bead-bound proteins to capture in vitro transcripts, or immobilized synthetic RNAs to bind proteins from cell lysates. In the RNA immunoprecipitation (RIP) assay, endogenous RNAs are co-immunoprecipitated ...
