Table 5 Representation of spliced genes among COPs, and correlation analysis for transcript modifications among these genes

From: Natural antisense transcripts with coding capacity in Arabidopsismay have a regulatory role that is not linked to double-stranded RNA degradation

  Total genes COPs p-value
COP genes show a strong positive bias for splicing
Total 30,624 1,912  
Spliced 21,157 (69.1%) 1,723 (90.1%) 4.7e-113
Spliced COP genes show a positive bias for alternative splicing
Spliced 21,157 1,723  
Alternatively spliced 2,331 (11.0%) 268 (15.6%) 1.3e-9
Alternatively spliced COP genes do not show a significant bias for alternative splicing at the last intron, TSS variation or polyadenylation site variation
