Transient reduction of DNA methylation at the onset of meiosis in male mice

PMCID: 5883305
PMID: 29618374
DOI: 10.1186/s13072-018-0186-0
call_split See protocol

[…] ed. A final table containing logFC (is log2FC), logCPM (is log2CPM), p value and FDR value for each gene was obtained.For the analysis of the transcriptional landscape of repetitive elements, we used RepEnrich according to the suggested protocol []. Briefly, we aligned RNA-seq data to the genome using Bowtie 1 parameters that allow only unique mapping (-m1) and outputted multi-mapping and uniquely […]


Transcriptional landscape of human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) and other repetitive elements in psoriatic skin

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5847543
PMID: 29531256
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22734-7

[…] describing the genome-wide expression pattern of HERVs and repetitive elements in the context of psoriasis. In the present study, we re-analysed our previously published RNA-seq data,, utilizing the RepEnrich pipeline in order to investigate the genome-wide transcriptional landscape of HERVs and repetitive elements in the lesional and non-lesional skin of psoriasis patients. […]


ROP: dumpster diving in RNA sequencing to find the source of 1 trillion reads across diverse adult human tissues

PMCID: 5857127
PMID: 29548336

[…] t with 50% relative abundance (Additional file : Figure S3). Among SVA retrotransposons, SVA-D was the most abundant element with 50% relative abundance (Additional file : Figure S4). Consistent with repEnrich [], when using in-house data, we observe the differences in proportions of L1 and Alu elements between poly(A) and ribo-depletion libraries. Among the repeat reads, poly(A) samples have the […]


Analysis of the Expression of Repetitive DNA Elements in Osteosarcoma

Front Genet

[…] ap multiple locations. The mapping confidence was more than 90 because the quality threshold was set to 10. Reads were filtered out if the score was < 10. Mapping quality was at an average of 30. The RepEnrich pipeline with RepeatMasker hg19 library as reference was used for obtaining read counts based on reads aligning to repeated element loci. […]


­­­Silencing of retrotransposons by SETDB1 inhibits the interferon response in acute myeloid leukemia­­

PMCID: 5674883

[…] hg19 with Bowtie 2.2.4 and processed with MACS2 (; ). Peak calling was performed with both broad- and narrow-peak functions using a bandwidth of 150, tag size of 50, and q-value cut-off of 0.05. The RepEnrich pipeline was used to determine H3K9me3 levels over TEs. This pipeline generates fractional counts for each element. Fractional counts are generated by quantifying reads that map exclusively […]


Major satellite repeat RNA stabilize heterochromatin retention of Suv39h enzymes by RNA nucleosome association and RNA:DNA hybrid formation

PMCID: 5538826
PMID: 28760199

call_split See protocol

[…] Using the RNA-seq alignment files, coverage over repeat elements (MSR, minor satellites, LINE L1MdA and SINE B1) present in the RepeatMasker mouse mm10 genome annotation was determined using RepEnrich (), with the following modifications. First, in order to process the RNA-seq alignment files for RepEnrich, uniquely and multiply mapping reads were separated from the alignment file using S […]
