Long non-coding RNAlncRNAmodulate gene expression patterns at all levels from epigenetic, transcription to post-translation, and play important roles in a wide range of biological processes. However, how lncRNA regulate seed aging remains unknown. In this study, we performed a whole transcriptome strand specific RNA sequencing (ssRNA-seq) for rice seed and analyzed the differences of lncRNAs expression in rice seed embryo during accelerated aging. Most lncRNAs are down-regulated in aged seeds. According to the KEGG results of lncRNA’s co-localization and co-expressed genes, the functional pathways of up-regulated lncRNAs in aged seeds are different from those down-regulated lncRNAs. The major pathways of up-regulated lncRNA’s co-expression and co-localization genes are related to base excision repair, while the down-regulated genes related to plant pathogen interaction, plant hormone signal transduction, energy metabolism, etc.

 

The cDNA sequence of lncRNA XLOC-037529 was obtained by RACE cloning. XLOC_037529 showed significant differences before and after aging, but may not function synergistically with miRNAs. Compared to indica genome, XLOC-037529 showed that: (1) it has a total length of 1325 bp with different alternative splicings, (2) the 5' end was conserved,  (3) the 3' end was not conserved and a polyA tail in the 3' end.
