In vitro selection of RNA aptamers to a small molecule target.

Author information

  • 1Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Texas, Austin, Texas, USA.


This unit describes the selection of aptamers from a single-stranded RNA pool that bind to small molecule targets. Aptamers generated by this type of selection experiment can potentially function as receptors for small molecules in numerous applications, including medical diagnostics, therapeutics, and environmental monitoring. This unit describes two modes of selection, one by column filtration and one by batch selection.
