From: Endonuclease-containing Penelope retrotransposons in the bdelloid rotifer Adineta vaga exhibit unusual structural features and play a role in expansion of host gene families

Figure 3

Transcription and RNA-mediated silencing of A. vaga Penelope families. (a) RNA-seq counts per family. Numbers on the Y axis represent RNA-seq counts per kb, and the moderately transcribed A. vaga Dicer-like genes [14] are used for comparison. Transcripts originating from the N2-related segment on scaffold 412 (see text) could not be accommodated using the same scale. (b-e) Small RNA coverage plots along selected full-length Penelope copies shown in FigureĀ 2. X axis, element length in bp; Y axis, small RNA counts per window of indicated size; red, sense reads; blue, antisense reads. (f) Coverage plot for scaffold 412; Pen3A pLTR is in the opposite orientation to the transcribed N2-related segment.
