Abstract

The advent of high-throughput technologies including deep-sequencing and protein mass spectrometry is facilitating the acquisition of large and precise data sets toward the definition of post-transcriptional regulatory networks. While early studies that investigated specific RNA-protein interactions in isolation laid the foundation for our understanding of the existence of molecular machines to assemble and process RNAs, there is a more recent appreciation of the importance of individual RNA-protein interactions that contribute to post-transcriptional gene regulation. The multitude of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) and their many RNA targets has only been captured experimentally in recent times. In this review, we will examine current multidisciplinary approaches toward elucidating RNA-protein networks and their regulation.
