RNA regulation including alternative pre-mRNA splicing and overlapping natural antisense transcripts has emerged as an important RNA control layer of gene regulation networks in eukaryotic cells. It has been well documented in mammalian genomes but much less known in plants. Here we take Populus, a model system for perennial plant study, as an example to show the extensive alternative splicing and wide spread natural antisense transcription and their possible functions in regulating primary and secondary metabolism.
