Position specific intron retention is mediated by the histone methyltransferase SDG725

BMC Biol
PMCID: 5925840
PMID: 29706137
DOI: 10.1186/s12915-018-0513-8

[…] those found in 725ri-1 mutant plants [], indicating the distinct biological roles of these two h3k36-specific methyltransferases in rice., the splicing changes in rice were further analyzed by the spladder approach []. consistent with previous findings [], ir is the predominant form of as events identified by comparing to rice genome annotation (additional file : table s2). to perform […]


Innate Immune Response and Off Target Mis splicing Are Common Morpholino Induced Side Effects in Xenopus

Dev Cell
PMCID: 5861998
PMID: 29478923
DOI: 10.1016/j.devcel.2018.01.022

[…] (n = 1,000). read coverage across exons, introns and splice junctions were normalized and averaged across biological triplicates (and developmental stages) to generate sashimi plots using spladder (). the consensus donor splice sequence (b) was derived from annotated canonical splice junctions detected by ≥10 split reads across all control samples (uninjected and wild-type) […]


Environment dependent regulation of spliceosome activity by the LSM2 8 complex in Arabidopsis

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5499552
PMID: 28482101
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx375

[…] package () to generate a pileup file (coverage maps) for each sample. to detect alternative 5΄ splice site (a5΄ss), alternative 3΄ splice site (a3΄ss) and exon skipping (es) events, we employed the spladder software () using the highest confidence level. this toolbox takes the rna-seq alignments generated by tophat and the arabidopsis annotation data (tair10) as inputs to yield a splicing graph […]


A Comparison of RNA Seq Results from Paired Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded and Fresh Frozen Glioblastoma Tissue Samples

PLoS One
PMCID: 5266269
PMID: 28122052
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0170632

[…] transcript integrity number (tin) across all the transcripts and distribution of mismatches across reads were computed with rseqc [, ]. the percent spliced index (psi) values were calculated with spladder []. correlation plots and principal component analysis were done with custom r scripts., rsem read counts were used as input for deseq2 (version 1.10.1) [, ]. the cut-off for considering […]


Modulation of nonsense mediated decay by rapamycin

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5389481
PMID: 27899591
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkw1109

[…] v2.5.1b (). an expanded transcript annotation was generated using stringtie v1.2.3 () with gencode v19 as a reference annotation, and alternative splicing events were identified and quantified using spladder v1.0.0 (). paired differential splicing tests were performed using rmats-stat () with thresholds of δψ ≥ 0.1, δψ ≥ 0.05 and δψ > 0, and the resulting p-values were corrected for multiple […]
