RNA and DNA oligonucleotides radiolabeled with (32)P or (33)P often require gel electrophoresis to remove undesired side and/or degradation products. Common ways to visualize these molecules after electrophoresis are by ultraviolet (UV) shadowing, which necessarily reduces the specific activity of the oligonucleotide, and by autoradiography using film,(More)
The wildtype Tetrahymena ribozyme cannot catalyze detectable levels of phosphotransfer activity in vitro on an exogenous RNA substrate oligonucleotide when calcium(II) is supplied as the only available divalent ion. Nevertheless, low-error mutants of this ribozyme have been acquired through directed evolution that do have activity in 10mM CaCl(2). The(More)
