Table 1 Consequences of Alternative splicing. Location of transcript diversity and examples of functional consequences

From: Identifying and characterising key alternative splicing events in Drosophila development

Region altered in transcript Example functions associated with Change
ORF Protein interactions, Enzymatic activity, stability
5’ UTR Expression level, initiation or degradation rates, scanning efficiency, Ribosome procession, stability
3’ UTR Sub-cellular localisation initiation, degradation, stability
