Intergenic splicing, the joining of exons from separate genes, has been observed only rarely in mammals. While the matrilin (MATN) and lysosomal-associated protein transmembrane (LAPTM) genes comprise distinct gene families, we have demonstrated intergenic splicing between two sets of family genes, the matrilin-3 (MATN3) and lysosomal-associated protein transmembrane 4alpha (LAPTM4A), and the matrilin-2 (MATN2) and lysosomal-associated protein transmembrane 4beta (LAPTM4B). The expression… CONTINUE READING
