Alternative splicing: a new drug target of the post-genome era.

Abstract

Alternative splicing allows for the creation of multiple distinct mRNA transcripts from a given gene in a multicellular organism. Pre-mRNA splicing is catalyzed by a multi-molecular complex, including serine/arginine-rich (SR) proteins, which are highly phosphorylated in living cells, and thought to play crucial roles in spliceosomal formation and in the… (More)
