Analysis of small endogenous RNAs.
(Curr Protoc Mol Biol. 2008 Jan;Chapter 26:Unit26.7.)
Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts,
Eukaryotic cells express small noncoding RNAs to silence target genes or regulate
chromatin domains. MicroRNAs (miRNA) are endogenous small RNAs that are thought
to each regulate multiple mRNA targets. To gain a deeper understanding of
processes regulated by small noncoding RNAs, techniques are required to identify
and detect them. This unit describes standard laboratory methods for and comments
about high-throughput technologies for the identification and detection of small
RNAs. This unit also outlines a cell-based reporter gene assay for assessing the
regulatory potential of a microRNA on a candidate mRNA target.
