Rna splicing

A two step reaction in which introns are removed from a primary rna transcript and exons are joined together to form a mature mrna. An intron usually contains a clear signal for splicing, but in some cases a splicing signal may be masked by a regulatory protein. This results in alternative splicing. In rare cases a pre-mrna may contain several ambiguous splicing signals, resulting in a few alternatively spliced mrna.

Re: Use of cDNA when studying splicing

... from mature mRNA which only contains exons (coding regions) with introns (non-coding regions) remove. The non-coding region is removed by splicing leaving the exons to be transcribe into proteins. because the proteins are translated from mature mRNA, scientist would associate the protein ...

Re: qPCR vs Northern Blot

... - the Northern signal was maintained, the PRC signal decreased. A splicing change could still produce that result, as could the RNA degradation Jack mentioned.

Re: qPCR vs Northern Blot

I assume you are assaying aliquots of the same RNA samples by the two methods. Does your Northern probe bind between the binding sites of your PCR primers? If not, it is conceivable that a change in splicing in the presence of the shRNA causes your Northern target to be spliced out ...

Use of cDNA when studying splicing

Hi I've read a few studies where the authors aim to study the association of certain proteins to mRNA in a splicing-dependent manner. Mainly they compared samples containing spliced mRNA with cDNA-samples, in a way that to me seemed as if they insinuated that the cDNA samples ...

Re: Muscular dystrophy inheritance question

... downstream of the AAAAAAA the sequence is spliced to different sequences depending on the allele? Why, though, would the male show alternative splicing if he is homozygous? I've clearly not worked out this problem correctly. As you learn more about this one, please post it here.
