Nuclease Protection Assays MeSH Descriptor Data 2022


MeSH Heading
Nuclease Protection Assays
Tree Number(s)
E05.393.600
Unique ID
D023282
RDF Unique Identifier

Scope Note
Techniques for measuring specific nucleic acid interaction with another nucleic acid or with a protein by digestion of the non-interacting nucleic acid by various nucleases. After all non-interacting regions are eliminated by nuclease digestion, the protected nucleic acid that remains is analyzed. DNA FOOTPRINTING utilizes this technique to analyze the DNA contact sites of DNA-BINDING PROTEINS.
