Data from: Enhanced stability and polyadenylation of select mRNAs support rapid thermogenesis in the brown fat of a hibernator

Katharine R. Grabek, Cecilia Diniz Behn, Gregory S. Barsh, Jay R. Hesselberth & Sandra L. Martin
During hibernation, animals cycle between torpor and arousal. These cycles involve dramatic but poorly understood mechanisms of dynamic physiological regulation at the level of gene expression. Each cycle, Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT) drives periodic arousal from torpor by generating essential heat. We applied digital transcriptome analysis to precisely timed samples to identify molecular pathways that underlie the intense activity cycles of hibernator BAT. A cohort of transcripts increased during torpor, paradoxical because transcription effectively ceases...

Data from: Generation of transcript assemblies and identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms from seven lowland and upland cultivars of switchgrass

Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) is a North American perennial prairie species that has been used as a rangeland and forage crop and has recently been targeted as a potential biofuel feedstock species. Switchgrass, which occurs as tetraploid and octoploid forms, is classified into lowland or upland ecotypes that differ in growth phenotypes and adaptation to distinct habitats. Using RNA-sequencing reads derived from crown, young shoot and leaf tissues, we generated sequence data from seven switchgrass cultivars,...
