Fas is a transmembrane cell surface protein recognized by Fas ligand (FasL). When FasL binds to Fas, the target cells undergo apoptosis. A soluble Fas molecule that lacks the transmembrane domain is produced from skipping of exon 6 encoding this region in alternative splicing procedure. The soluble Fas molecule has the opposite function of intact Fas(More)
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a human genetic disease which occurs because of the deletion or mutation of SMN1 gene. SMN1 gene encodes the SMN protein which plays a key role in spliceosome assembly. Although human patients contain SMN2, a duplicate of SMN1, splicing of SMN2 produces predominantly exon 7 skipped isoform. In order to understand the(More)
