splice variant

splice variant

1. active mRNA that results from cutting and resealing or a RNA transcript by precise breakage of phosphodiester bonds at the 5' and 3' splice sites (exon-intron junction);
2. a recombinant DNA molecule derived from cutting and resealing of DNA from different sources.

The VEGF165 is secreted and binds to heparin, rendering it the most frequently studied splice variant.
Smith and her colleagues discovered a splice variant of the CCK-B receptor, known as the CCK-C receptor, which results from retention of the fourth intron on the CCK-B receptor and the insertion of 69 amino acids to the third intracellular loop, she explained.
An siRNA targeting the smaller splice variant consistently inhibited growth of MM6 cells.
They evaluated Wtl (Wilms' tumor suppressor gene) mRNA splice variant ratios and reduced mRNAs of the Wtl transcriprional targets Sdcl (syndecan-1), Pax2 (paired box gene 2), Egfr (epidermal growth factor receptor), and retinoic acid receptor, alpha (Rar [alpha]).
Washington, May 31 (ANI): Scientists have pinpointed a small RNA that spurs cells to manufacture a particular splice variant of a key neuronal protein, potentially promoting Alzheimer's disease (AD) or other types of neurodegeneration.
vectensis is processed similarly to vertebrate usherin, with a small extracellular splice variant in addition to a large transmembrane splice variant (as supported but not proven by the RT-PCR results), then an important, phylogenetically conserved role for the form found in the extracellular matrix needs to be considered.
