1-Methyl-7-nitroisatoic anhydride (1M7) is used as an in vivo SHAPE-MaP reagent for live cell RNA structure analysis at single nucleotide resolution. SHAPE -- or selective 2′-hydroxyl acylation analyzed by primer extension -- uses small, electrophilic chemical probes such as 1M7 to react with the 2′-hydroxyl group and provides insight to RNA structure. When combined with mutational profiling (MaP), quantitative nucleotide measurements are possible for entire transciptomes. Together, these methods deepen the understanding of RNA interactions and regions that may be exploited for design of RNA-targeting small-molecule drugs.

Riboswitches are non-coding RNAs that control gene expression by sensing small molecules through changes in secondary structure. While secondary structure and ligand interactions are thought to control switching, the exact mechanism of control is unknown. Using a novel two-piece assay

Almost all RNAs can fold to form extensive base-paired secondary structures. Many of these structures then modulate numerous fundamental elements of gene expression. Deducing these structure-function relationships requires that it be possible to predict RNA secondary structures accurately. However, RNA
