The neuropeptide nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ), the endogenous ligand of the opioid receptor-like 1 (ORL1) receptor, has been shown to play a prominent role in the regulation of several biological functions such as pain and stress. Here we describe the isolation and characterization of N/OFQ binding biostable RNA aptamers (Spiegelmers) using a mirror-image(More)
We describe a convenient assay for rapid qualitative evaluation of hybridization/ligation fidelity. The approach uses randomized probe strands of DNA and restriction enzyme digestion after amplification of reaction products by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). We report ligation efficiencies and fidelities of two DNA ligases, T4 DNA ligase and Thermus(More)
