<p>Northern blots were probed for <i>histone H4</i>, a very small mRNA that allows to visualise changes in poly(A) tail length by band shifts. (A) RNA was isolated over a time-course of ALPH1 RNAi depletion. Representative data from one of three RNAi clones are shown. (B) RNA isolated after 0 or 72 hours of ALPH1 RNAi depletion was treated with RNAse H in the absence or presence of oligo dT. Samples not treated with RNAse H served as control. The blot was re-probed for two small RNAs that have no poly(A) tail (5.8S rRNA and SL RNA) to demonstrate that the band-shift is specific to polyadenylated RNAs. (C) RNA was isolated over a time-course of CAF1 RNAi depletion. Representative data from one of three RNAi clones are shown. (D) RNA was isolated over a time-course of XRNA RNAi depletion. Representative data from one of two RNAi clones are shown.</p>
