SPM imaging of tecto RNA structures

High resolution scanning probe microscopy has been used to image tecto RNA structures synthesised in this project. Imaging of both thiolated and non-thiolated RNA fibres was achieved with atomic force microscopy with low tip-sample interactions. The resolution of the images enabled us to distinguish individual fibres on the mica surface and determine fibre length for individual fibres, association of fibres and also to estimate fibre width.
