mRNA poly(A) tail synthesis monitoring[1]

2-Ethynyl-labeled adenosine (2-EA) can be used to measure de novo mRNA poly(A) tail synthesis in proliferating cells. 2-EA is cell permeable and incorporates into nascent mRNA transcripts both transcriptionally by RNA polymerase I,II and III and posttranscriptionally by poly(A) polymerase instead of their natural analolg adenosine.

The resulting ethynyl-functionalized RNA can subsequently be detected via Cu(I)-catalyzed click chemistry that offers the choice to introduce a Biotin group (via Azides of Biotin) for subsequent purification tasks or a fluorescent group (via Azides of fluorescent dyes) for subsequent microscopic imaging[1].

Presolski et al.[2] and Hong et al.[3] provide a general protocol for Cu(I)-catalyzed click chemistry reactions that may be used as a starting point for the set up and optimization of individual assays.
