  • Alternative Splicing and Diseaseby Philippe Jeanteur

    Springer 2006; US$ 259.00

    Splicing of primary RNA transcript is a quasi-systematic step of gene expression in higher organisms. However, this process is not unequivocal but can follow alternate pathways. Alternative splicing of a given transcript can therefore yield several distinct mRNAs encoding as many different proteins. This book talks about this alternate pathway. more...
