Fluorescent peptide displacement as a general assay for screening small molecule libraries against RNA

Author affiliations

Abstract

A prominent hurdle in developing small molecule probes against RNA is the relative scarcity of general screening methods. In this study, we demonstrate the application of a fluorescent peptide displacement assay to screen small molecule probes against four different RNA targets. The designed experimental protocol combined with statistical analysis provides a fast and convenient method to simultaneously evaluate small molecule libraries against different RNA targets and classify them based on affinity and selectivity patterns.
