Abstract

Alternative splicing is a process of producing different isoforms of mature mRNA which originate from a common locus. Alternative splicing is present in all higher eukaryotes and has roles in expanding proteome diversity and post-transcriptional regulation. Alternative splicing in higher plants has not been studied extensively and new studies are anticipated as the new tools to accurately predict and visualize alternative splicing are being developed. Sequencing of the A. thaliana genome (and of other plant species, recently) has provided new information about alternative splicing in higher plants, Arabidopsis being the most commonly used species in these researches. Here, in the practical part of this work, the BPM genes of Arabidopsis are studied and some of the hypothetical isoforms of protein products derived from alternative splicing using the alternative donor and acceptor splice sites are created.
