Table 6 Analysis of preferences for alternative splicing and polyadenylation site variation among spliced COPs genes, in dependence of the termination site of the antisense transcript

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

Spliced COP genes with an antisense transcript not overlapping a sense transcript intron region, show a significant negative bias for alternative splicing
  COPs genes COPs with antisense gene ending 3,000-0 bp before the sense I/E boundary p-value
Spliced genes 1,723 1,497  
Alternatively spliced genes 268 (15.6%) 217 (14.5%) 0.0018
Spliced COPs genes with an antisense transcript overlapping a sense transcript intron region, show a significant positive bias for alternative splicing
  COPs genes COPs with an antisense gene ending 0-3,000 bp behind the sense I/E boundary p-value
Gene with splicing 1,723 226  
Alternative splicing 268 (15.6%) 51 (22.6%) 0.0018
  COPs genes COPs with an antisense gene ending > 40 bp behind the sense I/E boundary p-value
Gene with splicing 1,723 129  
Alternative splicing 268 (15.6%) 35 (27.1%) 0.00032
Alternatively spliced COPs sense genes with an antisense transcript ending more than 40 bp behind their last I/E boundary, show a positive bias for polyadenylation site variation
  COPs genes COPs with an antisense gene ending > 40 bp behind the sense I/E boundary p-value
Alternatively spliced 268 35  
Polyadenylation site variation 107 (39.9%) 25 (71.4%) 5.5e-05
