RNA binding proteins (RBPs) bind RNAs through specific RNA-binding domains, generating multi-molecular complexes known as ribonucleoproteins (RNPs). Various post-translational modifications (PTMs) have been described to regulate RBP structure, subcellular localization, and interactions with other proteins or RNAs. Recent proteome-wide experiments showed that RBPs are the most representative group within the class of arginine (R)-methylated proteins. Moreover, emerging evidence suggests that this modification plays a role in the regulation of RBP-RNA interactions. Nevertheless, a systematic analysis of how changes in protein-R-methylation can affect globally RBPs-RNA interactions is still missing. We describe here a quantitative proteomics approach to profile global changes of RBP-RNA interactions upon the modulation of type I and II protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs). By coupling the recently described Orthogonal Organic Phase Separation (OOPS) strategy with the Stable Isotope Labelling with Amino acids in Cell culture (SILAC) and pharmacological modulation of PRMTs, we profiled RNA-protein interaction dynamics in dependence of protein-R-methylation.
