EZ- Magna ChIRP RNA Interactome Kit -Isolation and characterization of non-coding RNA:chromatin complexes.
The Magna ChIRP RNA Interactome Kit uses the ChIRP method (Chromatin Isolation by RNA Purification) to enable identification and analysis of regions of chromatin that interact with a particular chromatin-associated RNA. This novel anti-sense probe-based capture strategy uses cross-linked chromatin to allow unbiased discovery of RNA-associated DNA sequences and proteins.
To perform ChIRP two pools consisting of mulitple biotinylated oligonucleotide probes complementary to the RNA of interest are used. These probe sets are combined with chromatin and hybridized to the chromatin-associated RNA. Complexes containing biotinylated-probes bound to the chromatin-associated RNA are then isolated using streptavidin magnetic beads. DNA or RNA can then be recovered and analyzed by quantitative PCR or next generation sequencing (ChIRP-seq). Alternatively, proteomic analysis of the recovered chromatin can be performed.
