    Alternative polyadenylation mediates genetic regulation of gene expression

    Briana E Mittleman et al.
    Genetic variation can impact multiple levels of gene regulation and disease through alternative polyadenylation.

    Divergence in alternative polyadenylation contributes to gene regulatory differences between humans and chimpanzees

    Briana E Mittleman et al.
    A comparative analysis of human and chimpanzee polyadenylation site usage establishes alternative polyadenylation as another key mechanism underlying the genetic regulation of transcript and protein expression levels in primates.

    The transcriptional elongation rate regulates alternative polyadenylation in yeast

    Joseph V Geisberg et al.
    The elongation rate of RNA polymerase II broadly affects the profile of poly(A) sites, and hence 3' mRNA isoforms, and it can mediate alternative polyadenylation in response to environmental conditions.

    Partial loss of CFIm25 causes learning deficits and aberrant neuronal alternative polyadenylation

    Callison E Alcott et al.
    Partial reduction of CFIm25 protein levels leads to misregulated alternative polyadenylation in neurons and learning deficits.

    Premature polyadenylation of MAGI3 produces a dominantly-acting oncogene in human breast cancer

    Thomas K Ni, Charlotte Kuperwasser
    The study of a recurrent breast cancer MAGI3 truncation reveals the role of MAGI3 in regulating the Hippo effector YAP and highlights premature mRNA cleavage and polyadenylation as a mechanism underlying cancer development.

    A plant-like mechanism coupling m6A reading to polyadenylation safeguards transcriptome integrity and developmental gene partitioning in Toxoplasma

    Dayana C Farhat et al.
    The epitranscriptomic-driven mRNA polyadenylation pathway protects transcriptome integrity by restricting transcriptional read-throughs and RNA chimera formation in apicomplexan parasites and plants.

    Enhanced stability and polyadenylation of select mRNAs support rapid thermogenesis in the brown fat of a hibernator

    Katharine R Grabek et al.
    In the torpid hibernator, when transcription is inhibited, enhanced stability and polyadenylation explain increased abundance of crucial transcripts required for intense non-shivering thermogenesis during arousal.

    Regulation of alternative polyadenylation by Nkx2-5 and Xrn2 during mouse heart development

    Keisuke Nimura et al.
    A tissue-specific transcription factor is involved in the regulation of alternative polyadenylation in conjunction with a transcription termination factor.
    1. Neuroscience

    NUDT21-spanning CNVs lead to neuropsychiatric disease and altered MeCP2 abundance via alternative polyadenylation

    Vincenzo A Gennarino et al.
    Individuals with deletions or duplications of the NUDT21 gene have altered levels of MeCP2 protein and intellectual disabilities.

    Structural insights into the assembly and polyA signal recognition mechanism of the human CPSF complex

    Marcello Clerici et al.
    Structural, biochemical, and proteomic analyses of a four-subunit core module of the cleavage and polyadenylation specificity factor complex reveal its molecular architecture and specific determinants of polyadenylation signal recognition in human mRNAs.
