Pre-mRNA structure impacts many cellular processes, including splicing in genes associated with disease. The contemporary paradigm of RNA structure prediction is biased toward secondary structures that occur within short ranges of pre-mRNA, although long-range base-pairings are known to be at least as important. Recently, we developed an efficient method(More)
Novel mutation in CYP21A2 gene causing the steroid 21-hydroxylase deficiency - C to G substitution in 7-position ofintron 2 acceptor splice site (c.290-7C>G) was identified. The effect of the mutation on splicing was checked in the system of CYP21A minigene expression in the cultured mammalian cells. The mutation impairs the usage of intron 2 acceptor(More)
