Further diversity of these isoforms arises from combinatorial alternative splicing of the primary transcripts of the three striated muscle TnT genes (1-4, 6).
Mutations in the protein would disrupt production of the primary transcripts, ultimately leading to lower levels of microRNAs.
[sup][12] To explore the possibility that some lncRNAs, which are differentially expressed after GCs-treatment, might also act as primary transcripts for microRNAs, we systematically searched for genomic overlap between differentially expressed lncRNAs and known microRNAs.
