Polynucleotides containing consecutive tracts of guanines can adopt an intramolecular G-quadruplex structure where multiple planar tetrads of hydrogen-bound guanines stack on top of each other. Remodeling of G-quadruplexes impacts numerous aspects of nucleotide biology including transcriptional and translational control. RNA helicase associated with AU-rich(More)
RNA Helicase associated with AU-rich element (RHAU) (DHX36) is a DEAH (Aspartic acid, Glumatic Acid, Alanine, Histidine)-box RNA helicase that can bind and unwind G4-quadruplexes in DNA and RNA. To detect novel RNA targets of RHAU, we performed an RNA co-immunoprecipitation screen and identified the PITX1 messenger RNA (mRNA) as specifically and highly(More)
