Quantitation of RNA for Hybridization Blots Using the VersaFluor Fluorometer

Matthew W. Fields, Section of Microbiology, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 14853


Introduction
Biologists frequently monitor the effect of environmental stimuli on living organisms by quantitating mRNA levels. The relative abundance of mRNA is typically determined with probes and hybridization blots, but these methods depend on accurate and sensitive methods for measuring total RNA. When fluorochromes bind to nucleic acids, fluorescence occurs, and changes can be monitored with a fluorometer. The following section describes the quantitation of total RNA with a VersaFluor fluorometer (Bio-Rad).


Materials and Methods
Total RNA was isolated from the strictly anaerobic ruminal bacterium, Prevotella bryantii, using an acid-phenol extraction procedure.1 All solutions, tubes, and pipets were DEPC treated and autoclaved before use. Escherichia coli K12 total RNA was isolated using a commercially available RNA purification kit and was stored at -70 C. RNA concentrations were determined using the VersaFluor fluorometer and RiboGreenTM RNA quantification kit (Molecular Probes, Inc). The excitation was at 490 nm (EX 490/10 filter), and the emission was monitored at 520 nm (EM 520/10 filter). A standard curve was generated with E. coli ribosomal RNA (supplied with the kit), and the range was 1 to 50 ng/ml.2 The standard and all samples were diluted in TE buffer and mixed with RiboGreen (Molecular Probes, Inc.) that had been diluted 2,000-fold. Fluorescence emission intensity was measured using disposable cuvettes, and the gain and range settings were adjusted to medium and 10,000, respectively. Relative fluorescence units (RFU)
