Alternative splicing is an important process contributing to proteome diversity without involving an increase in the number of genes. In some cases, alternative splicing is carried out under 'trans-mode', called alternative trans-splicing, in which exons located on separate pre-mRNA molecules are selectively joined to produce mature mRNAs encoding proteins with distinct structures and functions. However, it is not known how widespread or how frequently trans-splicing occurs in vivo. Recently… CONTINUE READING
