Description: NAI-N3 is a probe for icSHAPE (in vivo click selective 2'-hydroxyl acylation and profiling experiment). It acylates the 2'-OH in ssRNA and enables RNA structure profiling in vivo and ex vivo for all four bases. NAI-N3 can be used for site-specific RNA acylation using the RAIL (RNA Acylation at Induced Loops) method or in Apta-Seq to discover new aptamers in selected pools.
