Gene BmGATA beta of the silkworm Bombyx mori was previously shown to encode factor BCFI, which regulates the expression of a class of chorion genes expressed during the late stages of choriogenesis. We now show that the expression of the BmGATA beta gene is spatially and temporally regulated by alternative splicing that generates two major (BmGATA beta 1 and BmGATA beta 2) and one minor (BmGATA beta 3) mRNA isoforms of non-identical tissue distribution. The three isoforms differ in the… CONTINUE READING
