Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A novel method to isolate a single kind of RNA from RNA mixture was developed by using a biotinylated-PNA (peptide nucleic acid) that is complementary to the RNA. Efficient bindings of Escherichia coli tRNA(Leu)CUC were observed to the 9-mer and 12-mer PNAs that are complementary to the 3'-end region of the tRNA. Purified E. coli tRNA(Leu)CUC was obtained from E. coli tRNA mixture.
