This chapter describes the preparation of NMR quantities of RNA purified to single-nucleotide resolution for protein-RNA interaction studies. The protocol is easily modified to make nucleotide-specific isotopically labeled RNAs or uniformly labeled RNA fragments for ligation to generate segmentally labeled RNAs.
