In particular, we describe the introduction of G-quadruplex forming sequences close to the ribosome-binding site (RBS) on the mRNA of a reporter gene and the subsequent read-out of the expression levels. Insertion of a stable secondary structure results in the cloaking of RBS and eventually reduced gene expression levels. The structures and stability of the introduced sequences are further characterized by circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy and thermal melting experiments. The extent of inhibition is then correlated to the stability of the respective quadruplex structure, allowing judgement of whether factors other than thermodynamic stability affect the formation of a given quadruplex sequence in vivo. Measuring gene expression levels takes 2 d including cloning; CD experiments take 5 hours per experiment.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Hartig, Jörg Steffen</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Wieland, Markus</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-22T17:55:05Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Nature protocols ; 4 (2009), 11. - S. 1632-1640</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
