Core set of genes with shortened 3' UTRs in proliferative state. (a) Examples of transcripts with shortened 3' UTRs in the proliferative state compared to the arrested one in both BJ and MCF10A cells. Proximal and distal CSs are indicated by green and orange triangles, respectively. (b) The set of 216 transcripts that showed consistent change in 3' UTR length in both BJ and MCF10A cells was significantly enriched for genes with shortened 3' UTRs in the proliferative state (the increase from 83% and 75% to 94% is highly significant; P-values calculated using geometric tail).
