Default Fail in ligation of 5' RNA adapter


I am looking for help with library preparation in MiSeq. I have tried to ligate 5' RNA adapter (33bp) to RNA (22bp) already ligated to 3' DNA adapter (33bp), but it did not show any band at about 88bp. I have tested that the 3' adapter ligation is fine. The concentration of 5' adapter is 5 uM, and my ligation condition is 1h at 20 degree using T4 RNA ligase. I also tried 37 degree and overnight ligation, did not work. This 5' adapter terminates with "U". Will it affect ligation process? Any idea how to solve this problem? Thanks.

Default small rna ligation of 5'adapter

Sometimes it's difficult to visualize a doubly ligated small rna product (rna with a 3'ligated and 5'ligated adapter). The ligation efficiencies are pretty low, making it difficult to visualize on a gel. I would try running your sample on a bioanalyzer. You could also make a synthetic control RNA (with 5'phosphate and 3'OH) to check your 3 and 5'ligations. You'll be able to see this much better than small RNA isolated from cells or tissue.
