Abstract

© 2017, Springer Science+Business Media LLC. Northern blot analysis has been widely used as a tool for detection and characterization of specific RNA molecules. When coupled with radioactive probe northern blot allows for robust detection and characterization of small RNA molecules of trace amount. Here, we describe the detection and size characterization of virus-derived small interfering RNAs (vsiRNAs) in C. elegans using nonradioactive DNA oligo probes in northern blotting. Our protocol allows for the detection and characterization of not only primary vsiRNAs but also secondary vsiRNAs, a class of single-stranded vsiRNAs that has distinct migration pattern, and can be easily adapted to the detection of vsiRNAs in other organisms.
