    Intron removal (pre-mRNA splicing) is a necessary step for expression of most genes in higher eukaryotes. Alternative splice site selection is a prevalent mechanism that diversifies genome outputs and offers ample opportunities for gene regulation in these organisms. Pre-mRNA splicing occurs...

    The nuclear receptor PPARγ is a key regulator of adipogenesis, and alterations of its function are associated with different pathological processes related to metabolic syndrome. We recently identified two PPARG transcripts encoding dominant negative PPARγ isoforms. The existence of...

    The article discusses a research finding that distant exons in nascent RNA are held together during transcription, promoting splicing independent of intron fate. The splicing reaction depends on assembly of spliceosomal small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particles and non-sn RNP factors on regions...

    Splicing is a predominantly co-transcriptional process that has been shown to be tightly coupled to transcription. Chromatin structure is a key factor that mediates this functional coupling. In light of recent evidence that shows the importance of higher order chromatin organization in the...

  • An Asp7Gly Substitution in PPARG Is Associated with Decreased Transcriptional Activation Activity. Hua, Liushuai; Wang, Jing; Li, Mingxun; Sun, Xiaomei; Zhang, Liangzhi; Lei, Chuzhao; Lan, Xianyong; Fang, Xingtang; Zhao, Xin; Chen, Hong // PLoS ONE;Jan2014, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p1 

    As the master regulator of adipogenesis, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARG) is required for the accumulation of adipose tissue and hence contributes to obesity. A previous study showed that the substitution of +20A>G in PPARG changed the 7th amino acid from Asp to Gly,...

    Alternative splicing was discovered simultaneously with splicing over three decades ago. Since then, an enormous body of evidence has demonstrated the prevalence of alternative splicing in multicellular eukaryotes, its key roles in determining tissue- and species-specific differentiation...

    There is increasing evidence to suggest that splicing decisions are largely made when the nascent RNA is still associated with chromatin. Here we demonstrate that activity of histone deacetylases (HDACs) influences splice site selection. Using splicing-sensitive microarrays, we identified...

    Transcriptome sequencing allows for analysis of mature RNAs at base pair resolution. Here we show that RNA-seq can also be used for studying nascent RNAs undergoing transcription. We sequenced total RNA from human brain and liver and found a large fraction of reads (up to 40%) within introns....
