5′-Deoxy-5′-hydrazinylguanosine as an initiator of T7 RNA polymerase-catalyzed transcriptions for the preparation of labeling-ready RNAs.

Skipsey, M. and Hack, G. and Hooper, T. A. and Shankey, M. C. and Conway, L. P. and Schröder, M. and Hodgson, D. R. W. (2013) '5′-Deoxy-5′-hydrazinylguanosine as an initiator of T7 RNA polymerase-catalyzed transcriptions for the preparation of labeling-ready RNAs.', Nucleosides, nucleotides, and nucleic acids., 32 (12). pp. 670-681.


5′-deoxy-5′-hydrazinylguanosine was incorporated into the 5′-termini of RNA transcripts using T7 RNA polymerase. Transcriptions provided 5′-hydrazinyl-RNA that was readily labeled and purified. The use of fluorophore-labeled material was validated in an endoribonuclease activity assay.

Item Type:Article
Keywords:T7 RNA polymerase initiator, Fluorophore-labeled RNA.
