Metabolic Labeling of Yeast RNA with Radioactive Uracil
Author:  Yuehua Wei, date: 04/05/2013, view: 9625, Q&A: 0
To examine gene expression, Northern blot or Real-Time PCR can be used to detect low abundant RNA such as mRNA. However, for high abundant RNAs such as rRNA and tRNA, Northern blot will not be able to discriminate the newly synthesized RNA from ...
Northern Blot of tRNA in Yeast
Author:  Yuehua Wei, date: 04/05/2013, view: 13937, Q&A: 0
tRNAs are small RNAs around 70-90 nt. tRNAs are different from many other small RNAs in that they are very abundant, which makes it difficult to study their transcriptional regulation by traditional northern blot. Traditional Northern blot involves ...
