Genome-wide analysis of mammalian promoter architecture and evolution
Mammalian promoters can be separated into two classes, conserved TATA box–enriched promoters, which initiate at a well-defined site, and more plastic, broad and evolvable CpG-rich promoters. We haveExpand

The Transcriptional Landscape of the Mammalian Genome
This study describes comprehensive polling of transcription start and termination sites and analysis of previously unidentified full-length complementary DNAs derived from the mouse genome. WeExpand

Molecular cloning of a potential proteinase activated receptor.
A DNA sequence encoding a G-protein-coupled receptor was isolated from a mouse genomic library. The predicted protein is similar in structure to the thrombin receptor and has a similar activationExpand

Expression of a noncoding RNA is elevated in Alzheimer's disease and drives rapid feed-forward regulation of β-secretase
Recent efforts have revealed that numerous protein-coding messenger RNAs have natural antisense transcript partners, most of which seem to be noncoding RNAs. Here we identify a conserved noncodingExpand

Antisense Transcription in the Mammalian Transcriptome
Antisense transcription (transcription from the opposite strand to a protein-coding or sense strand) has been ascribed roles in gene regulation involving degradation of the corresponding senseExpand

Analysis of the mouse transcriptome based on functional annotation of 60,770 full-length cDNAs
Only a small proportion of the mouse genome is transcribed into mature messenger RNA transcripts. There is an international collaborative effort to identify all full-length mRNA transcripts from theExpand

Inhibition of natural antisense transcripts in vivo results in gene-specific transcriptional upregulation
The ability to specifically upregulate genes in vivo holds great therapeutic promise. Here we show that inhibition or degradation of natural antisense transcripts (NATs) by single-strandedExpand

Striatal microRNA controls cocaine intake through CREB signaling
Cocaine addiction is characterized by a gradual loss of control over drug use, but the molecular mechanisms regulating vulnerability to this process remain unclear. Here we report that microRNA-212Expand

Expression of the novel galanin receptor subtype GALR2 in the adult rat CNS: Distinct distribution from GALR1
Recent molecular cloning studies by our laboratory and others have identified the existence of a novel rat galanin receptor subtype, GALR2. In the present study, we examined the regional and cellularExpand

Regulatory roles of natural antisense transcripts
Mammalian genomes encode numerous natural antisense transcripts, but the function of these transcripts is not well understood. Functional validation studies indicate that antisense transcripts areExpand
