Regulatory elements inside introns

Hi I am wondering if intron have regulatory elements other than splicing recognition signals (Donor, Acceptor and branch point sites). because I have found a mutation in the middle of the intron of my gene and noticed that the patient has some phenotypic resulted from ...

... HGT to actually occur in nature. In other words, for DNA to be taken up from another organism, what stages of transfer would be required from both donor and recipient. You are a biologist so you should have no difficulty in explaining to this forum what those stages would be. I'm not unable, but ...

... if extinct and unsampled lineages are taken into consideration. Especially for small gene families the distinction between gene-transfer donor and recipient often is not possible. The identification of donors and recipients is certainly probabilistic and not absolute. However, these limitations ...
