Table 2 Ratios of the number of transcripts supporting the alternative splicing classes of skipped exon (SE), initiation within intron (IWI), termination within intron (TWI), and retained intron (RI).

From: Comprehensive analysis of alternative splicing in rice and comparative analyses with Arabidopsis

Variation Prevalence Rice Arabidopsis
SE Minor 1,603 (61.0%) 284 (54.2%)
  Equal 118 (4.5%) 28 (5.3%)
  Major 909 (34.5%) 212 (40.5%)
IWI Minor 3,570 (94.5%) 763 (90.6%)
  Equal 61 (1.6%) 21 (2.5%)
  Major 146 (3.9%) 58 (6.9%)
TWI Minor 3,988 (94.8%) 804 (93.9%)
  Equal 58 (1.4%) 14 (1.6%)
  Major 162 (3.8%) 38 (4.5%)
RI Minor 7,713 (70.0%) 3,574 (76.6%)
  Equal 546 (5.0%) 163 (3.5%)
  Major 2,755 (25.0%) 926 (19.9%)
  1. These counts and ratios were calculated from pairwise comparisons between PASA assemblies. Cases where only a single transcript supports a variation were excluded. For each variation type, SE, IWI, TWI and RI, the prevalence of evidence indicates that it is the minor variation for the majority of cases examined. Note that the cognate isoform for SE is the retained exon (RE) and the cognate isoform for RI is the spliced intron (SI).
