Analysis of an RNA consensus sequence associated with human PUM proteins.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
(A) PUF consensus motif in 3′-UTR sequences associated with PUM1, PUM2, Drosophila Pum and yeast Puf3, Puf4 and Puf5 proteins , . Height of the letters indicates the probability of appearing at the position in the motif. Nucleotides with less than 10% appearance were omitted. (B) Distribution of PUF consensus motifs. (C) Number of PUF motifs in the 3′-UTRs of PUM bound messages. (D) Distances between double PUF motifs present in 3′-UTR. Represented bins are 50 nts (0–4000 nts distance) and 10 nts (0–200 nts distance). (E) Analysis of PUF motif conservation among PUM1 and PUM2 targets. The x-axis shows the position (relative to the middle of the PUF motif), and the y-axis shows the logarithm (base 10) of the p-value from the Wilcoxon test determining whether conservation scores come from the same distribution for PUM targets and non-targets. The vertical blue line is drawn at position 0 corresponding to the PUF motif. The dashed black line is drawn at a p-value of 0.05, the continuous black line at a p-value of 0.01, and the red line at a p-value of 10−5, which is the threshold for significance considering multiple testing.
