Summary Alternative splicing occurs in most human genes and contributes to protein diversity by producing multiple mRNAs from each gene. In this book, the authors present new developments in alternative splicing research. Topics discussed include alternative splicing alterations in Alzheimer's disease; plant RNA-binding proteins implicate mRNA processing in abscisic acid (ABA) responses; comprehensive analyses of alternative exons in neuronally differentiated P19 cells; an epigenetic view on alternative splicing; identification of genuine alternative splicing variants for rare or long-sized transcript.
