RNA FISH can be used to visualize subcellular locations of RNA or RNA-RBP complexes including the location of noncoding RNAs !
RNA FISH allows the identification and localization of noncoding RNAs in cells ! Ribonucleic Acid Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (RNA FISH) is a visualization technique that allows simultaneous detection, localization, and quantification of individual RNA molecules at the subcellular level….
