Individual-nucleotide resolution UV crosslinking and immunoprecipitation (iCLIP) is a state-of-the-art technology to map the RNA interaction sites of an RNA-binding protein (RBP) across the transcriptome. Here, we present the new iCLIP2 protocol that allows to obtain high-quality iCLIP libraries in a fast and efficient manner. The new protocol comprises separate adapter ligations, two cDNA amplification steps and bead-based size selection. The full procedure can be completed within four days. Our advances significantly increase the complexity of the iCLIP2 libraries, resulting in a more comprehensive representation of RBP binding sites. Overall, the methodological advances in iCLIP2 allow efficient library generation and thereby promote the versatile and flexible application of this important technology.

We describe six persons from three families with three homozygous protein truncating variants in PUS7: c.89_90del (p.Thr30Lysfs∗20), c.1348C>T (p.Arg450∗), and a deletion of the penultimate exon 15. All these individuals have intellectual disability with speech delay, short stature, microcephaly, and aggressive behavior. PUS7 encodes the RNA-independent pseudouridylate synthase 7. Pseudouridylation is the most abundant post-transcriptional modification in RNA, which is primarily thought to stabilize secondary structures of RNA. We show that the disease-related variants lead to abolishment of PUS7 activity on both tRNA and mRNA substrates. Moreover, pus7 knockout in Drosophila melanogaster results in a number of behavioral defects, including increased activity, disorientation, and aggressiveness supporting that neurological defects are caused by PUS7 variants. Our findings demonstrate that RNA pseudouridylation by PUS7 is essential for proper neuronal development and function.
