    ..Noteworthy, deep transcriptome analyses do not identify common misregulated gene expression that could explain the observed phenotypes. Our results provide a novel link between RNA processing and genome stability. ..

    ..Our data suggest that subtelomeric RNAs expression links telomere maintenance to RNA degradation pathways. ..

    ..Our results indicate that aslncRNAs form dsRNA that are only translated and targeted to NMD if dissociated by Mtr4 and Dbp2. We propose that NMD buffers genome expression by discarding pervasive regulatory transcripts. ..

    ..In this perspective, we have explored the idea that translation can be part of the fate of cytoplasmic lncRNAs, raising the possibility for them to work as bifunctional RNAs, endowed with dual coding and regulatory functions. ..

    ..Finally, we will present a non-exhaustive catalogue of lncRNA classes, thus illustrating the vast complexity of eukaryotic transcriptomes. ..

    ..Our work highlights that antisense transcription is much more extended than anticipated and might constitute an additional nonpromoter determinant of gene regulation complexity. ..
