This assay is designed to measure the decay kinetics of mRNA in T. brucei blood forms. T. brucei lacks the canonical transcriptional regulation employed by other eukaryotes through transcription factors, and relies almost entirely on regulation of mRNA decay and further downstream steps in order to control gene expression. 3 replicates of 8 time points were taken to measure mRNA abundance in the cell using RNA-seq. The first time point was fot WT, untreated cells; the second was 5 min after the ...

The file contains the normalized relative read counts (RPM) of 2 mRNA decay experiments. Columns in blue correspond to experiment 1, columns in violet correspond to experiment 2. The time points are in column headers. The last 3 columns contain parameters and half lives calculated from an exponantial fit of all data points. Normalization was done in 2 steps :first by calculating RPM i.e. reads per million of aligned reads to unique ORFs, second by normalizing this to the total amount of mRNA ...
