Transcriptome analysis of hypoxic cancer cells uncovers intron retention in EIF2B5 as a mechanism to inhibit translation

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 5636171
PMID: 28961236
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.2002623

[…] ters were used, with a filter option applied to require a minimum of 20 reads to support an event identification.To identify regulatory elements that may affect retention of EIF2B5 intron 12, we used AVISPA []. This method, based on computationally derived splicing codes, has been used previously to detect and experimentally verify novel regulators of exon splicing in a variety of experimental con […]


Integrative deep models for alternative splicing

PMCID: 5870723
PMID: 28882000
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx268

[…] odels, we use it to compare the old and new models. We generated genomic features and PSI quantification for ∼12 000 cassette exons used in () for this dataset for the five tissues using MAJIQ () and AVISPA (). The second dataset, denoted MGP Data, was prepared by () and it contains RNA-Seq data from six tissues (heart, hippocampus, liver, lung, spleen and thymus) with average read coverage of 60 […]


A new view of transcriptome complexity and regulation through the lens of local splicing variations

PMCID: 4801060
PMID: 26829591
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.11752.080

[…] inclusion from P15 through adulthood (). Taken together, this complex LSV offers a novel mechanism for postnatal neuronal reduction in Ptbp1.To identify putative regulators of novel exon 14, we used AVISPA (), a web tool that utilizes splicing code models to suggest motifs important for tissue-specific splicing, and identified the [U]GCAUG binding motif of the Rbfox family as important for neuron […]
