Reverse Sanger sequencing of RNA by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry after solid phase purification.


Several DNA/RNA sequencing strategies have been developed using matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS). In the reverse Sanger sequencing approach alpha-thiophosphate-containing NTPs are employed. Sequencing ladders are produced by the subsequent exonuclease cleavage, which is inhibited by the alpha-S-NTP at the 3' terminus… (More)
