Gaining insight into the genetic regulation of gene expression in human brain is key to the interpretation of genome-wide association studies for major neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases. Expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) analyses have largely been used to achieve this, providing valuable insights into the genetic regulation of steady-state RNA in human brain, but not distinguishing between molecular processes regulating transcription and stability. RNA quantification within cellular fractions can disentangle these processes in cell types and tissues which are challenging to model in vitro. We investigated the underlying molecular processes driving the genetic regulation of gene expression specific to a cellular fraction using allele-specific expression (ASE). Applying ASE analysis to genomic and transcriptomic data from paired nuclear and cytoplasmic fractions of anterior prefrontal cortex, cerebellar cortex and putamen tissues from 4 post-mortem neuropathologically-confirmed control human brains, we demonstrate that a significant proportion of genetic regulation of ...

Profiling of paired nuclear and cytoplasmic fractions of anterior prefrontal cortex, cerebellar cortex and putamen samples by bulk-tissue RNA-sequencing. Samples were derived from 4 post-mortem neuropathologically-confirmed control individuals ( anterior prefrontal cortex – 4 individuals, cerebellar cortex – 4 individuals, putamen- 3 individuals). Paired-end FASTQ files for each of the human samples are provided. Fastp (v 0.20.0), a fast all-in-one FASTQ pre-processor, was used for adapter ... (Show More)
