Intronic sequence with both negative and positive effects on the regulation of alternative transcripts of the chicken β trophmyosin transcripts

Abstract : The chicken beta tropomyosin gene generates three major transcripts by alternative splicing. A pair of internal exons are spliced in a mutually exclusive manner and their utilisation is developmentally regulated. Exon 6A and exon 6B are used respectively in myoblasts and myotubes during the process of differentiation of muscle cells. We have previously reported that, in myoblasts, exon 6B is skipped because of a negative regulation which involves intron as well as exon sequences. In this report, we describe a previously uncharacterized intronic element which is involved in the regulation of the splicing of both exons 6A and 6B. This cis-element is localized 37nt downstream of exon 6A and is approximately 30nt long. Its deletion, as well as modification of its sequence, results in the activation of the use of exon 6B and, at the same time, in the inhibition of the use of exon 6A. The mechanisms by which this region could act are further discussed.
