We analyzed the mRNA diversity of genes after inducing neuronal differentiation in human NT2 teratocarcinoma cells using all-trans retinoic acid (RA). DNA microarray analyses of cells treated with RA identified 358 RA-responsive genes. mRNA diversity analysis revealed that 274 genes produced multiple protein-coding transcripts by alternative splicing. Among these 274 genes, we chose 26 genes that showed AS in their C-terminus and 12 transcription factor genes for further analysis. By using transcript-specific primers, we performed quantitative real-time PCR analysis to examine the expression profiles of all the protein-coding transcripts. Consequently, we identified genes which showed different RA-induced changes in the expression of their protein-coding transcripts.

The purpose of this study is to identify genes responsible for epilepsy and disorders of human cognition.
A process whereby multiple RNA transcripts are generated from a single gene. Alternative splicing involves the splicing together of other possible sets of EXONS during the processing of some, but not all, transcripts of the gene. Thus a particular exon may be connected to any one of several alternative exons to form a mature RNA. The alternative forms of mature MESSENGER RNA produce PROTEIN ISOFORMS in which one part of the isoforms is common while the other parts are different.
Differentiation antigens expressed on pluripotential hematopoietic cells, most human thymocytes, and a major subset of peripheral blood T-lymphocytes. They have been implicated in integrin-mediated cellular adhesion and as signalling receptors on T-cells.
Different forms of a protein that may be produced from different GENES, or from the same gene by ALTERNATIVE SPLICING.
A c-jun amino-terminal kinase that is found predominantly within NEURONS of the BRAIN, suggesting a role in stress-induced neuronal APOPTOSIS. Several isoforms of the protein with molecular sizes of 47 kDa and 52 kDa exist due to multiple ALTERNATIVE SPLICING.
An eph family receptor found primarily in differentiated neuronal tissues. Several isoforms of EphA5 receptor occur due to multiple alternative RNA splicing. The protein is prominently expressed in the NEURONS of the LIMBIC SYSTEM during development and throughout adult life, suggesting its role in the plasticity of limbic structure and function.
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
