The RNase protection assay.


The RNase protection assay is a sensitive method for transcription start-site localization. It begins with an RNA probe that is uniformly labeled by incorporation of one [α-(32)P]NTP, usually [α-(32)P]UTP. The RNA probe is synthesized by bacteriophage RNA polymerase (SP6, T7, or T3), which initiates transcription from specific phage promoters that have been… (More)
