[Abstract] Primer extension analysis is a useful method to determine the transcription start point or a processing site on an RNA molecule. It can also allow a quantitative measurement of an RNA species.

Keywords: 5' end mapping(5’端映射), Reverse Transcription(反转录), Primer extension(引物延伸)

Materials and Reagents

  1. AMV reverse transcriptase from the avian myeloblastosis virus (Finnzyme, catalog number: F570) (other reverse transcriptases can also be used, by adapting the reaction buffer)

  3. RNasin Plus RNase inhibitor (Promega Corporation, catalog number: N2611)
  4. Glycogen (Acros organics, catalog number: 422950010)
  5. NaCl 
  6. Tris-HCl (pH 7.5) 
  7. EDTA
  8. MgCl2
  9. EtOH
  10. dATP,dCTP,dGTP,dTTP (Promega Corporation, catalog number: U120D, U121D, U122D, U123D)
  11. γ-32P ATP (3,000 Ci/mmole, 10 μCi/μl) (PerkinElmer, catalog number: BLU502A)
  12. DTT (Promega Corporation, catalog number: P117B)
  13. 5x ss-Hybridization buffer (see Recipes)

Equipment

  1. Incubator

Procedure

  1. Primer labelling
    1. Labelling mix (total volume 10 μl):
      1. 1 μl oligonucleotide (20-25 mer, 10 pmoles/μl)
      2. 3.5 μl γ32P ATP (10 μCi/μl)
      3. 1 μl T4 DNA polynucleotide kinase
      4. 1 μl 10x polynucleotide kinase reaction buffer
      5. 3.5 μl H2O
    2. Incubate 30 min at 37 °C, stop reaction on ice.

  2. Precipitation
    1. Add 1/10 vol 10 M LiCl.
    2. Add 3 vol EtOH (96 %).
    3. Incubate 30 min at -80 °C.
    4. Centrifuge 20 min at >10,000 x g at room temperature (RT), take off supernatant, don't wash.
    5. Air-dry pellet and take up in 10 μl (consider concentration to be 0.5 pmoles/μl).

  3. Annealing step
    1. Annealing mix (total volume 10 μl):
      1. 10 - 20 μg total RNA
      2. 10 U RNasin RNase inhibitor
      3. 0.5 pmole of 5' labelled primer (1 μl)
      4. 2 μl 5x ss-hybridization buffer
      5. Add water to 10 μl.

  4. Extension step
    1. Add directly to the annealing mix:
      1. 40 μl 1.25x RT buffer (pre-warmed at 50 °C)
      2. 10 U AMV transcriptase
      3. 10 U RNasin inhibitor
    2. Incubate 30 min at 50 °C (extension).

  5. Extension termination
    1. Add to the reaction mix:
      1. 1 μl EDTA (0.5 M)
      2. 6 μl NaOH (1 M)
    2. Incubate 10 min at 55 °C.
    3. Add 6 μl HCl (1 M) (neutralization).

  6. Precipitation
    1. Add 1/10 vol 10 M LiCl.
    2. Add 25 μg glycogen.
    3. 2.5 vol EtOH.
    4. Incubate at -20 °C for > 1 h.
    5. Centrifuge 10 min at >10,000 x g at room temperature, wash pellet 1x with 70% EtOH.
    6. Air-dry pellet and take up in 15 μl of classic DNA Loading dye buffer.

  7. Separation of reaction products on denaturing polyacrylamide gel.
