Profiling of RNA modifications by multiplexed stable isotope labelling

Chem Commun (Camb). 2014 Apr 4;50(26):3516-8. doi: 10.1039/c3cc49114e. Epub 2014 Feb 24.


The combination of (15)N/(13)C stable isotope labelling (SIL) and LC-MS/MS revealed a total of 52 modifications in RNA from E. coli and yeast, including 10 previously undescribed modifications. Two modifications, N-ribosylnicotinamide and 2-methylthioadenosine, were newly detected in species hitherto thought not to contain these modifications.
