Exon larger at 3' end

Detailed expression analysis of this fictive gene showed that a minor fraction of the transcripts (<5%) contained an alternatively spliced exon 53, extending it 33 nucleotides into intron 53. Based on a coding DNA reference sequence, numbering of these differentially spliced nucleotides is straightforward, i.e. as for the intronic nucleotides c.9660+1 to c.9660+33. The encoded amino acids can best be numbered p.Val3220+1 to p.Glu3220+11; this number clearly indicates their position in relation to the other amino acids with the '+' number indicating a location in an intron.

Exon 53
