Abstract:Alternative splicing of eukaryotic messenger RNA transcripts often leads to the production of several mature RNAs - including linear RNAs and circular RNAs (circRNAs) - from a single gene locus. The names given to circRNAs are often ambiguous and lack consistency across studies. This Comment calls on the community to embrace a common nomenclature for naming circRNAs to ensure clarity and reproducibility.
