EpiJET 5-hmC and 5-mC Analysis Kit Thermo Scientific™

Themo Scientific EpiJET 5-hmC and 5-mC Analysis Kit includes three advanced enzymes: T4 phage β-glucosyltransferase (T4 BGT), Epi MspI and Epi HpaII. The Epi MspI and Epi HpaII are isoschisomers with differing sensitivity to internal C methylation of the CCGG site. Epi MspI completely digests genomic DNA when cytosine, 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) or 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) is within its recognition sequence, but its activity is completely blocked when 5-hmC is glucosylated. Epi HpaII cleaves the unmodified CCGG site only.

The kit takes advantage of the T4 BGT ability to specifically modify 5-hmC residues by adding glucose moiety to 5-hmC and the sensitivity of restriction enzyme Epi MspI to glucosylated 5-hmC. The T4 BGT is formulated for highly specific, complete and fast glucosylation of 5-hmC in 15 minutes.

The analysis involves DNA sample glucosylation and subsequent restriction digestion with Epi MspI and Epi HpaII. Restriction digestion products are then analyzed by qPCR with a primer pair flanking CCGG site of interest.

Pierce™ Magnetic RNA-Protein Pull-Down Kit Thermo Scientific™

The Thermo Scientific Pierce Magnetic RNA-Protein Pull-Down Kit provides researchers with a streamlined, robust method to enrich protein-RNA interactions using end-labeled RNA as the bait.

Features of the Magnetic RNA-Protein Pull-Down Kit:

Direct – capture ribonucleoprotein complexes directly with end-labeled RNA; does not use or require antibodies for pull-down
Easy to use – no spin cups or centrifugation necessary for the enrichment of RBP; procedure streamlined for minimal hands-on time (less than 3 hours) after RNA labeling reaction
Flexible – use in vitro transcribed RNA or synthetic RNA for labeling of various lengths and complexity; proteins successfully enriched using endogenous, over-expressed, and in vitro translated lysates
Specific – low bead background; unrelated RNA or mutated RNA does not significantly enrich specified RBPs
Economical – less expensive than purchasing commercially synthesized end-labeled RNA, magnetic beads, and reagents separately
Complete – contains both labeling and enrichment modules with buffers necessary for assay; positive control RNA, negative control RNA, and RBP antibody included

The Magnetic RNA-Protein Pull-Down Kit provides reagents to efficiently enrich RNA Binding Proteins (RBPs) using RNA end-labeled with desthiobiotin and streptavidin magnetic beads. The complete kit contains sufficient reagents for 20 RNA labeling reactions and 20 protein-RNA pull-down assays. This direct enrichment of the protein-RNA interaction provides an alternative to antibody capture of protein-RNA complexes or moieties incorporated into the nucleic acid. An added advantage to the kit is that it includes validated controls for both the labeling and pull-down assay. The kit is amenable to several downstream applications, including Western blotting and Mass Spectrometry (MS).

Includes:
Complete kit contains the Pierce RNA 3'-End Desthiobiotinylation Kit, positive and negative RNA controls, nucleic-acid compatible streptavidin magnetic beads, and buffers for RBP enrichment and elution

Requires:
User-supplied RNA and lysate (experimental sample)

Applications:
• Mutational analysis
• Structure function analysis
• Identification of RNA:Protein interactions
• MS analysis of unknown RNA:protein binding pairs or complexes

Utilizing labeled RNA as bait for RNA-binding protein enrichment is advantageous over antibody enrichment in that it captures the interaction directly. Included in this kit is the Pierce RNA 3'-End Desthiobiotinylation Kit, which uses T4 RNA ligase to attach a single cytidine bisphosphate nucleotide to the 3'-ends of single-stranded RNA. Desthiobiotin may be used for detection or as an elutable affinity handle. The length of the spacer between the nucleotide and desthiobiotin has been optimized for efficient attachment to the beads without compromising the accessibility of the RNA to protein.

The procedure for enrichment of RNA binding proteins has been optimized for ease-of-use. The labeled RNA is first captured to the beads to orient the RNA for protein binding. RNA-bound beads are then equilibrated in Protein RNA Binding buffer before protein lysate is added. After washing, sample can be eluted using either nondenaturing Biotin Elution Buffer or SDS-PAGE loading buffer. Eluted samples are ready for a variety of downstream applications, including Western blotting or Mass spectrometry.

The control system for the pull-down assay utilizes 3'-untranslated region androgen receptor (AR) RNA, poly(A)25 RNA, and mammalian cell lysate. The proximal 3'-untranslated region (UTR) of androgen receptor RNA contains UC-rich regions for HuR and Poly(C) Binding Proteins (CP1 and 2). These RNA binding proteins regulate mRNA stability (HuR) and mRNA turnover and translation (CP1 and 2). The negative control RNA, poly(A)25 RNA, does not contain HuR or poly(C) BP binding sites.

mirVana™ miRNA Detection Kit Invitrogen™

The Ambion® mirVana™ miRNA Detection Kit provides a fast and sensitive method for detecting small RNAs. The assay is 100–500 times more sensitive than Northern analysis, it is able to detect as little as 10 attomoles (10-17 mol) of target RNA. Each kit includes sufficient reagents for 100 reactions.

• Sensitive—detect miRNA or siRNA in as little as 50 ng total RNA
• Specific—extremely low backgrounds
• Simple and fast—single-tube procedure eliminates the need to transfer to membrane for hybridization
• Multiple target detection—detect multiple small RNAs and mRNAs in the same sample

Rapid Procedure Based on Solution Hybridization
The mirVana™ miRNA Detection Kit is based on a simple solution hybridization principle where the RNA sample is simply mixed with radiolabeled RNA probe(s) and hybridized. Unhybridized RNA and excess probe are removed by a digestion step and the hybridized, protected RNA fragments are then recovered using a patented single-step technology for simultaneous ribonuclease inactivation and nucleic acid precipitation. RNA samples are then resuspended and analyzed on a denaturing polyacrylamide gel.

Simultaneous Detection of siRNA Expression and Target Gene Knockdown
Because multiple RNA species of the same or differing size can be detected in the same sample, the mirVana™ miRNA Detection Kit is ideal for correlating siRNA expression levels with target mRNA knockdown. An example of this application is shown in the accompanying data, which demonstrates that GAPDH mRNA levels were reduced in cells expressing a GAPDH siRNA, but not in cells expressing a control siRNA.

Accessory Products:
The mirVana™ miRNA Probe Construction Kit (SKU#AM1550) is available for the preparation and labeling of probes by in vitro transcription and the mirVana™ Probe & Marker Kit is available for 5' end labeling of oligonucleotide probes and the included Decade Markers (SKU#AM1554).

Click-iT™ RNA Alexa Fluor™ 594 Imaging Kit Invitrogen™

The Click-iT® RNA Alexa Fluor® 594 Imaging Kit enables detection of global RNA transcription temporally and spatially in cells and tissues (PNAS (2008) 105:15779-84).The ability to detect newly synthesized RNA or changes in RNA levels resulting from disease, environmental damage or drug treatments is an important aspect of toxicological profiling. Utilizing an alkyne-modified nucleoside, 5-ethynyl uridine (EU), and powerful click chemistry, newly synthesized RNA can be detected without the use of radioactivity or antibodies with a simple, two-step procedure. In step one, the alkyne-containing nucleoside is fed to cells or animals and actively incorporated into nascent RNA. The small size of the tag enables efficient incorporation of the modified nucleoside into RNA, but not into DNA. Detection utilizes the chemoselective ligation or “click" reaction between and azide and an alkyne where the modified RNA is detected with a corresponding azide-containing dye. With its dimunitive “footprint", the Click-iT® detection molecule can easily penetrate complex samples and leaves open the possibility of multiplex analyses with other probes, including antibodies for the detection of RNA-interactive proteins for deeper biological insights.

Precision gRNA Synthesis Kit Invitrogen™

The Precision gRNA Synthesis Kit is a complete system for rapid synthesis of guide RNA (gRNA) ready to complex with TrueCut™ Cas9 Protein v2 for transfection-ready Cas9 protein/gRNA ribonucleoprotein (Cas9 RNP). This Cas9 RNP format, with our TrueCut Cas9 Protein v2, has been tested in a variety of suspension and adherent cell lines with >70% cleavage efficiencies and no indications of toxicity. Starting with two short single-stranded oligos that code for the target sequence, the gRNA template is assembled with a T7 promoter in a short ‘one-pot’ PCR reaction. The assembled product is then used as template in an in vitro transcription (IVT) reaction followed by a rapid purification step, yielding transfection-ready gRNA in as little as four hours. Resulting gRNA can also be co-transfected with our ready-to-transfect Invitrogen™ CRISPR Nuclease mRNA. Both protein and mRNA Cas9 formats require no plasmid manipulation and so are amenable to high throughput and multiplex genome-wide cell engineering approaches.

Features of the Precision gRNA Synthesis Kit include:
• Fast assembly and synthesis of any gRNA target in as little as four hours including template assembly
• High yield (>10 ug) and concentration (>200 ng/uL) of gRNA

How to obtain a gRNA sequence
Genome editing with CRISPR technology requires a noncoding guide RNA (gRNA) in order to cleave genomic DNA at a target sequence of interest. The gRNA has two molecular components: a target-specific CRISPR RNA (crRNA) and a trans-activating crRNA (tracrRNA) that have been combined into one transcript. The target sequence (20 bases) must be immediately upstream of a PAM motif (NGG) which allows the Cas9 to initiate binding. The PAM is only on the target DNA and not part of the target specific CRISPR sequence. The gRNA and the PAM motif guide the Cas9 nuclease to the target genomic sequence to form a complex and create a double-stranded blunt DNA break (DSB) three nucleotides upstream from the PAM site.

Use our CRISPR Search and Design Tool to search our database of >600,000 gRNA sequences specific to every gene in the human and mouse genomes. Invitrogen predesigned gRNAs are optimized for gene knockout and typically target the first three transcribed exons per gene. Search results include recommendations based on minimizing potential off-target effects, potential binding sites, and exon maps with gRNA locations. This tool can also be used to analyze any sequence of interest to design unique CRISPR sequences.

How to make gRNA
Once gRNA sequences have been selected, choose from three options for making gRNA:
1. TrueGuide synthetic guide RNA—choose from our catalog of predesigned gRNAs or upload your sequence to our TrueGuide gRNA Ordering Tool

MEGAscript™ T7 Transcription Kit Invitrogen™

The MEGAscript® T7 Kit is an ultra-high yield in vitro transcription kit. The high yields are achieved by modifying typical transcription reaction conditions so that very high nucleotide concentrations can be effectively used. The T7 Enzyme Mix and the 10X Reaction Buffer are specifically calibrated for each lot and RNA polymerase.

Using the MEGAscript® T7 Kit
The MEGAscript® T7 Kit contains in vitro transcription reaction components and a control template. The kit will yield a total of 3–5 mg of RNA (approximately 100 µg of RNA or more per reaction) from the control template supplied with the kit. This corresponds to 400–650 moles of RNA for each mole of template. Smaller templates typically yield a lower mass and a higher molar yield of product. Novel transcription reaction conditions and a patented, high-yield technology allow the synthesis of 10–50 times the amount of RNA produced by conventional transcription reactions.

Applications
The MEGAscript® T7 Kit is intended for the synthesis of large amounts of unlabeled or low specific activity RNA for a variety of uses, including in vitro translation, antisense/microinjection studies, and isolation of RNA binding proteins. In large-scale transcription reactions, the concentration of all 4 nucleotides is high, well above the Km for the enzyme. The MEGAscript® T7 Kit typically yields over 10 times more RNA than conventional in vitro transcription reactions. The kit is not recommended for synthesis of high specific activity probes.

Accessory products
MessageAmp™ aRNA amplification kits are powered by MEGAscript® technology and have been developed especially for the amplification of cRNA prior to array analysis. To purify in vitro transcription products from free nucleotides, buffer components, and enzymes, we recommend using the MEGAclear™ Kit (Cat. No. AM1908) and the MEGAclear™-96 Kit (Cat. No. AM1909).

RapidFinder™ Equine ID Kit

The RapidFinder™ Equine ID Kit enables the simple and reliable detection of horse meat in food and feed samples. The method works by detection of horse (Equus caballus) DNA by real-time PCR. Unlike ELISA based methods, the RapidFinder™ Equine ID Kit detects both raw and processed horse meat and provides sensitivity down to 0.01% horse meat DNA when used with the GMO Extraction Kit. A positive control is included in the kit (0.1% equine DNA) that can be used as a reference to set the threshold of detection of the assay.

• Simple—real-time PCR based assay, no electrophoresis needed
• Flexible—equine DNA detected in any food or feed sample, both raw and processed
• Reliable—internal positive control (IPC) provides process control check for PCR inhibitors
• Fast—from sample to result on the same day

How the RapidFinder™ Equine Kit Works
Equine DNA detection is accomplished by real-time PCR using the supplied primer/probe set specific for a mitochondrial DNA sequence that is unique to Equus caballus. The target sequence, detected in the FAM™ channel, is not only specific for horse, but also stable. Included in each reaction mix is an internal positive control detected in the VIC® channel, used to verify the absence of PCR inhibitors.

By performing a separate reaction with the included positive control, users are able to verify the system and assay are working correctly. More importantly, it enables easy data interpretation. The positive control is provided as 0.1% horse DNA in a background of beef DNA, and by comparing sample results to control results, a threshold of detection is provided.

The assay is compatible with Applied Biosystems® StepOne™, StepOnePlus™, 7500, 7500 Fast, and 7300 real-time PCR systems.

Sample Preparation
DNA sample preparation for the RapidFinder™ Equine ID Kit workflow is accomplished with the easy-to-use GMO Extraction Kit. Using 10 g of sample rather than the smaller sample sizes accommodated by most other DNA isolation procedures minimizes sampling errors. The GMO Extraction Kit is compatible with raw and processed meat, as well as composite food samples.

Quantification
If a positive result is obtained with the RapidFinder™ Equine ID Kit, you can quantify the amount of equine DNA in the sample using the RapidFinder™ Quant Equine Set.
