Alternative Splicing in Neuronal Development
...development. Alternative splicing refers to the processing
of an RNA transcript into different mRNA molecules by including some exons and excluding others. Specific cell types often have signature patterns of alternative splicing. Polypyrimidine-tract binding protein (PTB) is a well-known inhibitor of alte...
