Tools for studying and using small RNAs: from pathways to functions to therapies
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Watson School of Biological Sciences

This poster provides an overview of the tools that have been developed to understand the functions of small RNAs and, conversely, the use of small RNAs as tools. Tools that are based on small RNAs have been exploited to investigate gene function in cultured cells and in living animals. Small RNA biogenesis, discovery and functional roles are explored in detail. Screening approaches to functional genomics, in vivo methods and potential therapeutic applications are discussed.

A unique method that uses a levulinate ester as a protecting group to introduce conjugates or molecular probes to virtually any location in a synthetic RNA molecule is discussed. The Levulinyl protecting group is stable in RNA synthesis conditions and can be removed without affecting the other parts of the synthesized RNA. We show the capabilities of this approach with three high-complexity synthesis examples.

The Prestwick Chemical Library (R), A Valuable Tool for Screening
1. Prestwick Chemical, 220 Blvd Gonthier d'Andernach, 67400 Strasbourg-Illkirch, FRANCE 2. University of Strasbourg, Therapeuthic Innovation Laboratory, UMR7200 CNRS, Faculty of Pharmacy, 74 route du

The Prestwick Chemical Library® (PCL) is Prestwick’s flagship product dedicated to screening. It is a collection of 1280 molecules comprising 100% approved drugs (FDA, EMEA and other agencies) selected for their high chemical and pharmacological diversity. The PCL was designed to reduce the risk of "low quality" hits and therefore the cost of the initial screening, and appears to be an efficient smart library for hit discovery. The PCL comes with an extended fully-annotated database.
