In vitro Assay for Cytidine Deaminase Activity of APOBEC3 Protein
Authors:  Smita Nair and Alan Rein, date: 10/20/2014, view: 5760, Q&A: 0
Cytidine deaminases are enzymes that catalyze the removal of an amino group from cytidine, forming uridine. APOBEC3 (ApolipoproteinB mRNA editing enzyme, catalytic polypeptide like) proteins are cytidine deaminases that deaminate cytidines in ...

Generation of microRNA Sponge Library
Author:  Sebastian Herzog, date: 04/20/2018, view: 234, Q&A: 0
This protocol describes the generation and functional validation of microRNA (miRNA) sponge or decoy constructs. When expressed from a strong promoter, these transcripts can sequester specific miRNA:RISC complexes, thereby resulting in a ...
