  • a Classification of the gene or transcription unit associated with an antisense PAC. Overlapping, antisense-oriented PACs associated with overlapping, convergently transcribed genes. Nearby, antisense PACs that lie downstream from nearby, convergently transcribed genes. Orphan, antisense PACs that cannot be associated with identifiable transcription units.

  • b Total number of curated antisense-oriented poly(A) site tags that map to the respective class.

  • c Percentage of all antisense PATs in the respective genetic background (the wild type or oxt6) that fall within the indicated regions. Wild-type and oxt6 PAT totals were calculated separately.

  • d Percentage of total (sense + antisense) PATs that are antisense and fall within the indicated regions. Wild-type and oxt6 PAT totals were calculated separately.
