Concept

Problem: A hypothetical gene produces the following pre-mRNA.How many distinct mRNA sequences could be processed from this pre-mRNA? Assume alternative splicing can occur. Select all that apply.A. Exon 1-Exon 2-Exon 3B. Exon 1-Intron A-Exon 3C. Exon 1-Intron A-Intron B-Exon 3D. Exon 1-Intron A-Exon 2-Exon 3E. Exon 2-Intron B-Exon 3

Alternative Splicing: allows for a single gene to be spliced in multiple way

: results in multiple proteins being formed from a single gene
