RNA-protein complexes are critical for almost all aspects of gene expression. Analysis of RNA-protein interactions can be complicated by the disruption of native complexes and the formation of new, reassorted complexes upon cell lysis. Before concluding that a specific RNA and protein interact in vivo, cell-mixing experiments can be performed to ensure that observed RNA-protein complexes are not formed after lysis of cells.
