Deoxyribozyme-catalyzed labeling of RNA

Dana A. Baum, Scott K. Silverman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Tag team: A deoxyribozyme is used in a general strategy for site-specific covalent modification of RNA. This strategy was used to append the fluorescence resonant energy transfer (FRET) pair, fluorescein and tetramethylrhodamine (tamra), to the 160-nucleotide P4-P6 RNA, thereby enabling a FRET experiment to be performed for this RNA. (Graph Presented).
