Colonic adenomas resulting from inducible loss of adenomatous polyposis coli (Apc) in leucine-rich repeats and immunoglobulin-like domains 1 (Lrig1)+/− stem cells have abnormal splicing patterns. The tumors consistently displayed abnormal patterns of intron retention in several RNA-binding genes. The Lrig1-(Apc-Flox) tumor transcriptome is characterized by a loss of intron retention in RNA-binding genes. Abnormal patterns of gene splicing were observed throughout the mRNA pileups of genes involved in RNA-binding, including the genes FUS RNA-binding protein (FUS) (left) and metadherin (Mtdh) (right). RNA sequencing reads from matched adjacent nontumor (‘normal’) tissue (top) and adenoma (bottom) are plotted
