RNA-Seq identifies the microtubule-interacting transcriptome (MT-RNAs)

Researchers at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital used RNA-seq to study the microtubule-interacting trancriptome of the frog Xenopus tropicalis. They identified ∼450 mRNAs that showed significant enrichment on microtubules (MT-RNAs). In addition, they demonstrated that the MT-RNAs incenp, ...

Reptilian Transcriptome V1.0

Reptiles are largely under-represented in comparative genomics despite the fact that they are substantially more diverse in many respects than mammals. Given the high divergence of reptiles from classical model species, next-generation sequencing of their transcriptomes is an approach of ...
