    Background: Coupling of alternative splicing with nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) may regulate gene expression. We report here the identification of a nonsense alternative transcript of the fumarylacetoacetate hydrolase (fah) gene, which produces a protein despite the fact that it is subject...

    Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is associated with mutations in the dystrophin gene that disrupt the open reading frame whereas the milder Becker's form is associated with mutations which leave an in-frame mRNA transcript that can be translated into a protein that includes the N- and C-...

    TBX3 is a member of the T-box family of transcription factors with critical roles in development, oncogenesis, cell fate, and tissue homeostasis. TBX3 mutations in humans cause complex congenital malformations and Ulnar-mammary syndrome. Previous investigations into TBX3 function focused on its...

    Alternative pre-mRNA splicing has an important role in the control of neuronal gene expression. Many neuronal proteins are structurally diversified through the differential inclusion and exclusion of sequences in the final spliced mRNA. Here, we discuss common mechanisms of splicing regulation...

    Protein-truncating mutations in the dystrophin gene lead to the most common childhood form of muscle wasting, Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Becker muscular dystrophy, a condition that typically arises from dystrophin gene lesions that do not disrupt the reading frame, clearly indicates that...

    Subtle alternative splicing leads to the formation of RNA variants lacking or including a small number of nucleotides. To date, the impact of subtle alternative splicing phenomena on protein biosynthesis has been studied in frame-preserving incidents. On the contrary, mRNA isoforms derived from...

    Alternative splicing involves differential exon selection of a gene transcript to generate mRNA and protein isoforms with structural and functional diversity. Abnormal alternative splicing has been shown to be associated with malignant phenotypes of cancer cells, such as chemo-resistance and...

  • Widespread occurrence of alternative splicing at NAGNAG acceptors contributes to proteome plasticity. Hiller, Michael; Huse, Klaus; Szafranski, Karol; Jahn, Niels; Hampe, Jochen; Schreiber, Stefan; Backofen, Rolf; Platzer, Matthias // Nature Genetics;Dec2004, Vol. 36 Issue 12, p1255 

    Splice acceptors with the genomic NAGNAG motif may cause NAG insertion-deletions in transcripts, occur in 30% of human genes and are functional in at least 5% of human genes. We found five significant biases indicating that their distribution is nonrandom and that they are evolutionarily...

    The human and mouse genomes share a number of long, perfectly conserved nucleotide sequences, termed ultraconserved elements. Whereas these regions can act as transcriptional enhancers when upstream of genes, those within genes are less well understood. In particular, the function of...
