Purine-rich low complexity regions are potential RNA binding hubs in the human genome

Ivan Antonov, Yulia A. Medvedeva
2019 F1000Research  
The universal TTSs were enriched with the purine-rich low complexity regions. Nowadays, the role of the chromatin bound RNAs in the formation of 3D chromatin structure is actively discussed.  ...  While the universal TTSs were quite rare in the human genome (around 0.5%), they were more frequent (>15%) among the MEG3 binding sites (ChOP-seq peaks) and especially among the shared Capture-seq peaks  ...  We have updated the title of the article to: 'Purine-rich low complexity regions are potential RNA binding hubs in the human genome'.  ...
