Photoactivable Ribonucleoside Enhanced CLIP Inquiry

For mapping sites where proteins directly interact with RNA accurately, several technologies have been developed. Photoactivatable ribonucleoside enhanced cross-linking and immunoprecipitation (PAR-CLIP) is a modified CLIP protocol allowing the identification of cross-linking sites at a single-nucleotide resolution. Lifeasible is a global leading biotechnology company, providing PAR-CLIP platform for RNA-protein interaction study.

In PAR-CLIP, the photoreactive ribonucleoside analogs, such as 4-thiouridine (4-SU) and 6- thioguanosine (6-SG), are usually incorporated into nascent RNA transcripts by living cells. UV irradiation at 365 nm can induce efficient cross-linking of photoreactive nucleoside-labeled cellular RNAs to interacting RBPs. Cross-linking the 4-SU and 6-SG analogs lead to thymidine (T) to cytidine (C), and guanosine (G) to adenosine (A) transitions respectively (Figure 1). Therefore, PAR-CLIP can identify binding site with high accuracy.
