Alternative Splicing: allows for a single gene to be spliced in multiple way
: results in multiple proteins being formed from a single gene
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 3
B. Exon 1-Intron A-Exon 3
C. Exon 1-Intron A-Intron B-Exon 3
D. Exon 1-Intron A-Exon 2-Exon 3
E. Exon 2-Intron B-Exon 3
