• Reinterpreting sheep muscle strand‐specific RNA sequencing data showing extensive 3′UTR extensions

    27 days ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    The more complex 3′ UTR in higher organisms may have the function of increasing post‐transcriptional gene regulation. Recent RNA sequencing technologies have provided us with the possibility to capture the complete 3′ UTR landscape of different species and cells. However, no systematic analysis of sheep‐related 3′ UTR has been performed. Here, we conducted a detailed analysis of the 3′ UTR with the primary goal of identifying intact 3′ UTR landscapes in the sheep muscles of the three developmental stages. Based on strand‐specific RNA sequencing data, we found that thousands of...
