Quantification of RNA content in reconstituted ebola virus nucleocapsids by immunoprecipitation

Logan Banadyga, Hideki Ebihara

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Immunoprecipitations are commonly used to isolate proteins or protein complexes and assess protein-protein interactions; however, they can also be used to assess protein-RNA complexes. Here we describe an adapted RNA immunoprecipitation technique that permits the quantification of RNA content in Ebola virus nucleocapsids that have been reconstituted in vitro by transient transfection.
