Abstract
RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) play important and essential roles in eukaryotic gene expression regulating splicing, localization, translation, and stability of mRNAs. We describe ultraviolet crosslinking and affinity purification (uvCLAP), an easy-to-use, robust, reproducible, and high-throughput method to determine in vivo targets of RBPs. uvCLAP is fast and does not rely on radioactive labeling of RNA. We investigate binding of 15 RBPs from fly, mouse, and human cells to test the method's performance and applicability. Multiplexing of signal and control libraries enables straightforward comparison of samples. Experiments for most proteins achieve high enrichment of signal over background. A point mutation and a natural splice isoform that change the RBP subcellular localization dramatically alter target selection without changing the targeted RNA motif, showing that compartmentalization of RBPs can be used as an elegant means to generate RNA target specificity.
