Zea mays cultivar:B73 Transcriptome or Gene expression
Transposons in maize may be involved in the formation of circRNAs and further modulate phenotypic variation. To test our hypothesis, we performed circRNA-Seq(RNase R treated) on B73 seedlings(third leaves of V3 stage), and uncovered 1,572 high-confidence maize circRNAs, which show distinct genomic features compared to linear transcripts. Comprehensive analyses showed that LINE1-like elements (LLE) and their reverse complementary pairs (RCPLLEs) are significantly enriched in the flanking regions of circRNAs.
