RNA Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (RNA-ChIP) in Caenorhabditis elegans


Cecere G, Grishok A

The RNA chromatin immunoprecipitation assay (RNA-ChIP) allows detection and quantification of RNA–protein interactions using in vivo cross-linking with formaldehyde followed by immunoprecipitation of the RNA–protein complexes. Here we describe the RNA–ChIP protocol that we have adapted for Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) to detect interaction between the nuclear Argonaute CSR-1 (chromosome segregation and RNAi deficient) protein and its target nascent RNAs. We have used a transgenic strain expressing a recombinant long isoform of CSR-1 protein fused with N-terminal 3x FLAG epitope.
