A crude-oil-degrading, Gram-stain-positive actinobacterial strain, RIPIT, was isolated from a soil sample collected from an oil-contaminated mud pit in Khangiran oil and gas field, in the north-east of Iran. RIPIT was strictly aerobic, catalase- and oxidase-positive. The strain grew with 0-12.5 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 3-5 %), at 25-55 °C (optimum 45 °C) and at pH 6.0-9.5 (optimum pH 7.0). The results of 16S rRNA gene sequence comparative analysis indicated that RIPIT represents a member of the genus Prauserella, with high phylogenetic similarity to Prauserella coralliicola SCSIO 11529T (97...

The technological revolution in high-throughput nucleic acid and protein analysis in the last 15 years has launched the field of 'omics' and led to great advances in our understanding of cell biology. Consequently the study of the cellular proteome and protein dynamics, in particular interactomics, has been a matter of intense investigation, specifically the determination and description of complex protein interaction networks in the cell, not only with other proteins but also with RNA and DNA. The analysis of these interactions, beginning with their identification and ultimately resulting in structural level examination, is one of the cornerstones of modern biological science underpinning basic research and impacting on applied biology, biomedicine and drug discovery...

Human Staufen1 (Stau1) is a double-stranded RNA (dsRNA)-binding protein implicated in multiple post-transcriptional gene-regulatory processes. Here we combined RNA immunoprecipitation in tandem (RIPiT) with RNase footprinting, formaldehyde cross-linking, sonication-mediated RNA fragmentation and deep sequencing to map Staufen1-binding sites transcriptome wide. We find that Stau1 binds complex secondary structures containing multiple short helices, many of which are formed by inverted Alu elements in annotated 3' untranslated regions (UTRs) or in 'strongly distal' 3' UTRs...

Development of high-throughput approaches to map the RNA interaction sites of individual RNA binding proteins (RBPs) transcriptome-wide is rapidly transforming our understanding of post-transcriptional gene regulatory mechanisms. Here we describe a ribonucleoprotein (RNP) footprinting approach we recently developed for identifying occupancy sites of both individual RBPs and multi-subunit RNP complexes. RNA:protein immunoprecipitation in tandem (RIPiT) yields highly specific RNA footprints of cellular RNPs isolated via two sequential purifications; the resulting RNA footprints can then be identified by high-throughput sequencing (Seq)...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
