Our lab established a PAR-CLIP protocol for living C.elegans animals, called iPAR-CLIP. This allows to study RNA-binding protein interactions in vivo. Here, we list our published work, using this method. All sequencing data of published experiments are available through GEO.

A note on RNA thio labeling

The above papers utilized 4-thiouridine for RNA-labeling and crosslinking. We have also attempted to use 4-thiouracil as an alternative to 4-thiouridine for iPAR-CLIP in C.elegans. The raw data can be made available upon request by E-mail to Nikolaus Rajewsky.
