Examples

  • Molecular basis and characterization of the hyperinsulinism/hyperammonemia syndrome: predominance of mutations in exons 11 and 12 of the glutamate dehydrogenase gene.

  • DDS: These individuals carry specific alterations known as missense mutations, mostly in exons 8 or 9 of one working copy of the WT1 gene.

  • Alternative splicing is a big one, as it allows one specific mRNA to be spliced into a variety of forms by leaving out certain exons or by recognizing alternative splice sites.

    A Dubious "Opportunity" for IDers

  • During the splicing process exons from the two genes are spliced to form an RNA molecule that specifies the synthesis of a new protein, a so-called fusion protein.

  • The gene is spliced together out of portions called exons, excluding the introns, a bit of post-transcriptional editing that permits splice variants to be made, and that can increase the diversity of gene products.

  • Then the remaining sections, known as exons, the sections of bases that code for the wanted amino acids, must be spliced together by a very clever splicer.

    THE HIDDEN FACE OF GOD

  • Instead of looking for large-scale changes like CNVs, exome sequencing focuses on small changes that take place in key areas: the one to two percent of the human genome that actually codes for proteins this portion is contained in things called exons, hence the term "exome".

    Ars Technica

  • The remaining bits, called exons, can be stitched back together in different ways by the cell's splicing machinery to form different RNAs that can then give rise to different proteins.

  • The mutant sequences occur in portions of the gene known as exons, which contain the information needed to make the muscle protein.

  • Once the introns are removed, the remaining segments -- called exons -- are pasted together, forming a mature messenger RNA transcript.
