The study of the dynamic interactome of cellular ribonucleoprotein (RNP) particles has been hampered by severe methodological limitations. In particular, the affinity purification of intact RNP complexes from cell lysates suffers from RNA degradation, loss of interacting macromolecules and poor overall yields. Here we describe a rapid affinity-purification method for efficient isolation of the subcomplexes that dynamically organize different RNP biogenesis pathways in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Our method overcomes many of the previous limitations to produce large RNP interactomes with almost no contamination.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to scicrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
