You just wrote that the number of transcripts is bigger, which is what you expect. Did you mean that the number of genes expressed is larger than the number of transcripts? If so, how are you defining expressed? I'm guessing that you're setting a threshold and then noticing that fewer transcripts are expressed since a given gene's signal can get diluted over multiple transcripts (possibly causing all of them to fall below threshold even though the gene as a whole is above threshold).
