Splicing of fundamental RNA transcript is a quasi-systematic step of gene expression in better organisms. this is often the 1st ebook to focus on the scientific implications, i.e. ailments, brought on by replacement splicing. substitute splicing not just tremendously raises protein range but in addition bargains various possibilities for aberrant splicing occasions with pathological results. The ebook additionally outlines attainable ambitions for treatment.

Humans posses an almost identical gene, SMN2 that was generated through a recent duplication. Although both genes are almost identical in sequence, due to a translationally silent C>T change at position 6 in exon 7, they have different splicing patterns and exon 7 is predominantly excluded in SMN2.
