Protein enriched micro-vesicles and methods of making and using the same are provided. Aspects of the methods include maintaining a cell having a membrane-associated protein comprising a first dimerization domain and a target protein having a second dimerization domain under conditions sufficient to produce a micro-vesicle from the cell, wherein the micro-vesicle includes the target protein. Also provided are cells, reagents and kits that find use in making the micro-vesicles, as well as methods of using the micro-vesicles, e.g., in research and therapeutic applications.


Provided are methods of adding adapters to nucleic acids. The methods include combining in a reaction mixture a template nucleic acid, a template switch oligonucleotide, a polymerase, and dNTPs. The reaction mixture components are combined under conditions sufficient to produce a product nucleic acid that includes the template nucleic acid and the template switch oligonucleotide each hybridized to adjacent regions of a single product nucleic acid including a region polymerized from the dNTPs by the polymerase. The methods further include attaching sequencing platform adapter constructs to ends of the product nucleic acid or a derivative thereof. Aspects of the invention further include compositions and kits.


Provided are methods of depleting a target nucleic acid from an initial collection of nucleic acids. Aspects of the methods include contacting the initial collection with a nucleic acid guided nuclease specific for the target nucleic acid in a manner sufficient to deplete the target nucleic acid from the initial collection. Depending on a given application, depletion of a target nucleic acid may vary, e.g., where depleting may include cleaving a target nucleic acid in, or selectively separating a target nucleic acid from, the initial collection of nucleic acids. Also provided are compositions and kits for practicing embodiments of the methods.


Provided are methods of adding adapters to nucleic acids. The methods include combining in a reaction mixture a template ribonucleic acid (RNA), a template switch oligonucleotide including a 3 hybridization domain and a sequencing platform adapter construct, a polymerase, and dNTPs. The reaction mixture components are combined under conditions sufficient to produce a product nucleic acid that includes the template RNA and the template switch oligonucleotide each hybridized to adjacent regions of a single product nucleic acid that includes a region polymerized from the dNTPs by the polymerase. Aspects of the invention further include compositions and kits.
