This book was written for graduate and medical students, as well as clinicians and postdoctoral researchers. It describes the theory of alternative pre-mRNA splicing in twelve introductory chapters and then introduces protocols and their theoretical background relevant for experimental research. These 43 practical chapters cover: Basic methods, Detection of splicing events, Analysis of alternative pre-mRNA splicing in vitro and in vivo, Manipulation of splicing events, and Bioinformatic analysis of alternative splicing. A theoretical introduction and practical guide for molecular biologists, geneticists, clinicians and every researcher interested in alternative splicing.

A strong base-pairing between U1 snRNA and the 50 splice site increases the likelihood that a splice site is used; (b) Diagram ofthe 30 splice site. ... the spliceosomal protein U2AF binds preferentially to pyrimidines, the longer the stretch of uninterrupted pyrimidines in the PPT, the more likelyanbsp;...
