Related to splicing: Gene splicing, Alternative splicing

splic·ing

(splīs'ing),
1. Attachment of one DNA molecule to another. Synonym(s): gene splicing
2. Removal of introns from mRNA precursors and the reattachment or annealing of exons. Synonym(s): RNA splicing
3. Posttranslational modification of a protein involving two proteolytic enzymes and one ligation; results in the removal of an internal sequence of amino acyl residues.

splicing

/splic·ing/ (spli´sing)
1. the attachment of individual DNA molecules to each other, as in the production of chimeric genes.

RNA splicing  the removal (splicing out) of introns from a primary transcript and the subsequent joining (splicing together) of exons in the production of a mature RNA molecule.

2. Removal of introns from mRNA precursors and the reattachment or annealing of exons.
Synonym(s): RNA splicing.

splicing

In genetics, the process in a DISCONTINUOUS GENE in MESSENGER RNA of removal of INTRONS and the joining together of exons.

splicing

the joining together of RNA chains, for example after the excision of INTRONS to link up the EXON segments and produce mature mRNA. see RNA PROCESSING.

splicing

of RNA, the excision of introns from the primary transcript and the joining together of exons to make their finished mRNA. See also ribonucleic acid.
