Study Description

We have deeply sequenced total RNA and whole exome of six different post-mortem human snap-frozen tissues (brain, liver, lung, striated muscle, kidney, heart) from three unrelated healthy Caucasian individuals (males, aged 47-54) with the aim to characterize post-transcriptional events due to alternative splicing and RNA editing. In addition, to facilitate the detection of RNA editing sites we have also resequenced the entire genome of each individual. Data are also used to investigate tissue-specific abundance of mitochondrial DNA from exomes and its correlation with mitochondrial transcription, mass and respiratory activity.

Tissues were obtained from Cureline (South San Francisco, CA, USA). DNA and RNA were purified using the DNeasy Blood and Tissue Kit (Qiagen, Hilden, Germany) and the RNeasy Plus Mini Kit (Qiagen, Hilden, Germany), respectively.

Exome capture was performed using the TruSeq Exome Enrichment Kit (Illumina, San Diego, CA) and the sequencing was carried out at IGA Technology Services in Udine (Italy) on Illumina HiSeq 2000 (generating for each ... (Show More)
