The properties and biology of mRNA transcripts can be affected profoundly by the choice of alternative polyadenylation sites, making definition of the 3' ends of transcripts essential for understanding their regulation. Here we show that 22-52% of sequences in commonly used human and murine "full-length" transcript databases may not currently end at bona fide polyadenylation sites. To identify probable transcript termini over the entire murine and human genomes, we analyzed the EST databases… CONTINUE READING
