DNA sequencing-based analysis of rolling circle products reveals reverse transcription activity of phi29 DNA polymerase. ( A ) After RCA, short DNA oligonucleotides were hybridized to an AluI restriction site in the RCA products and RCPs were digested with AluI restriction enzyme, resulting in RCA monomers. Following digestion, monomers were PCR-amplified using primers containing Ilumina adapter sequences. PCR products were extended using IIlumina indexed primers. Finally, sequencing library was prepared using indexed primers-specific P5/7 PCR primers. The region of interest containing RNA substitutions in the original padlock probe sequence is indicated with green boxes. ( B ) Logos showing sequencing frequencies for each position within RCA monomers generated from the control DNA circle (P1 = dG), and circles containing single rG, rU, rA and rC substitutions at the RNA position (P1).

    DNA sequencing-based analysis of rolling circle products reveals reverse transcription activity of phi29 DNA polymerase. ( A ) After RCA, short DNA oligonucleotides were hybridized to an AluI restriction site in the RCA products and RCPs were digested with AluI restriction enzyme, resulting in RCA monomers. Following digestion, monomers were PCR-amplified using primers containing Ilumina adapter sequences. PCR products were extended using IIlumina indexed primers. Finally, sequencing library was prepared using indexed primers-specific P5/7 PCR primers. The region of interest containing RNA substitutions in the original padlock probe sequence is indicated with green boxes. ( B ) Logos showing sequencing frequencies for each position within RCA monomers generated from the control DNA circle (P1 = dG), and circles containing single rG, rU, rA and rC substitutions at the RNA position (P1). Positions P1 and P2 are indicated and position P1 was additionally highlighted with the red box. ( C ) Incorporation of incorrect nucleotides for every position in the sequenced monomers from (B). Error rates, calculated as Incorporation error [%] = 1 – number of reads with expected nucleotide/total number of reads, is presented for padlock probes with single- (upper plot) and double-RNA substitutions (lower plots). P1 position for the first RNA substitution is indicated with the box.
