A correlation with exon expression approach to identify cis regulatory elements for tissue specific alternative splicing

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 1950531
PMID: 17626050
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkm485

[…] s ().The ‘tissue-non-specific alternative’ exon dataset was derived as described previously () from the European Bioinformatics Institute database of human alternative exons ( ‘Control exon datasets’ were generated from randomly selected chromosomal regions by extraction from RefSeq annotation databases to get exon coordinates. Control groups for the […]


A class of human exons with predicted distant branch points revealed by analysis of AG dinucleotide exclusion zones

Genome Biol
PMCID: 1431707
PMID: 16507133
DOI: 10.1186/gb-2006-7-1-r1

[…] step in prediction of all BPS. Previous BPS prediction approaches have typically used an arbitrary distance upstream of the 3' splice site within which to search for potential BPS. For example, both AltExtron [,] and the successful BPS procedure described by Ast and coworkers [] restricted their searches to 100 nucleotides upstream of the exon. Defining the AGEZ as the first step in BPS predictio […]
