Feature selection for splice site prediction: A new method using EDA-based feature ranking" BMC Bioinformatics 5: 64 (2004)
In conclusion, our results indicate possible clustering of causative NPHS2 mutations in FSGS-proven SRNS with onset in the first year of life, and provide additional evidence that children with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome due to focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, in whom NS occurs before the age of 13 years, should first undergo analysis of the NPHS2 coding sequence and the WT1 gene, especially focused on exons 8 and 9 and the surrounding exon/intron boundary DNA sequences, followed by, in cases with WT1 KTS intronic splice site variants, genotyping for gender.
These variants include those that affect splicing by disrupting or weakening the motifs at intron-exon boundaries, introducing de novo splice acceptor or donor sites, activating cryptic splice sites, or disrupting enhancer and silencer sequences.
Although they have dealt with only a few specific species and proteins focused individually, these observations may help us develop more general methods for splice site prediction if we can consider the relationships among species with respect to splicing patterns for thousands of splice sites.
578_579 + 5delAAGTATG mutation results from a deletion of 2 nucleotides at the 3' end position of exon 5 and the first 5 nucleotides of intron 5 including the donor splice site.
These include frameshift mutations caused by nucleotide insertion or deletion, as well as missense, nonsense, and splice site mutations (Abramowicz et al.
Sequencing of clones of these products revealed mRNA missplicing events in the 3' half of the gene, specifically the activation of a cryptic 5' splice site in one case and the complete exclusion of an exon in another.
The rivet system's tooling makes installation simpler and there is no need to supply compressed air to the splice site as was necessary with the previous system.
In this study, we report a heterozygous missense mutation and a splice site mutation in the PSENEN gene in two Chinese AI families with clinical manifestation of familial multiple comedones and Dowling-Degos disease (DDD).
Despite wide investigations used to detect the growth factors and to uncover the details of the molecular cascades which were involved in VEGF splice site selection, our information is still very scarce.
6% (69 of 70; Table 5) and demonstrated an ability to correctly identify different classes of mutations, including nonsense, missense, frameshift, in-frame deletion, splice site, and large-deletion mutations (Table 1).
