Mutations during splicing may lead to different consequences depending on how the mutation occurred. These mutations may happen through insertion, deletion and frameshift. For example, deletion of the splicing site will lead to extra introns remaining in the mature mRNA which will result to abnormal protein production.
How do splice-site mutations differ from nonsense mutations?
