An exon is any part of a gene that will encode a part of the final mature RNA produced by that gene after introns have been removed by RNA splicing. The term. Introns are non-coding sections of an RNA transcript, or the DNA encoding it, which are spliced out, or removed, before the RNA molecule is translated into a. In most eukaryotic genes, coding regions (exons) are interrupted by noncoding regions (introns). During transcription, the entire gene is copied into a pre-mRNA, .

Positive regulation of gene expression The expression enhancing effect of introns was first recognized in the experiment using simian virus 40 constructs with or without introns, showing that their protein products were significantly diminished without their introns [ 15 ].

This intron-containing mRNA is then reverse transcribed and the resulting intron-containing cDNA may then cause intron gain via complete or partial recombination with its original genomic locus. Retrieved from ” https: Journal List Genomics Inform v. At least four distinct classes of introns have been identified: Published online Dec Open in a separate window.

The signal sequence coding region promotes nuclear export of mRNA.

Exon – Wikipedia

Across all eukaryotic genes in GenBank there were inon average, 5. Sorek R, Ast G. Proto-genes and de novo gene birth. Early studies of genomic DNA sequences from a dab range of organisms show that the intron-exon structure of homologous genes in different organisms can vary widely.


Introns: The Functional Benefits of Introns in Genomes

However, it is not clear how extensively and strongly this buffering effect of intron regions might have evolutionary advantages for intron retention against the pressure of removing cellular burdens. Why genes in pieces?

Please review our privacy policy. In RNA splicing, introns are removed and exons are covalently joined to one another as part of generating the mature messenger RNA.

For other uses, see Exon disambiguation. This page was last edited on 23 Decemberat In Drosophila, long introns evolve more slowly than shorter ones and first introns are the longest compared to other introns [ 3763 ]. Relationship to nuclear mRNA splicing”.

The HR interference model predicts that selection efficiency should be different between genes that differ in exon-intron structures, so that genes with longer introns should be under weaker HR interference by increasing recombination between two sites in two neighboring exons. In that sense, long non-coding intron regions in higher eukaryotes can be a good reservoir of short and non-functional ORFs.

For instance, in the human genome only 1. Consistently, a recent study has shown that the levels of the expressions of genes important for plant development are regulated by NMD [ 36 ].


Deutsch M, Intronn M. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Recent genome-wide mapping intdon of nucleosome positions have shown that nucleosomes are relatively depleted in intron regions ontron to exonic regions [ 3233 ].

In tandem genomic duplication, due to the similarity between consensus donor and acceptor splice sites, which both closely resemble AGGT, the tandem genomic duplication of an exonic segment harboring an AGGT sequence generates two potential splice sites. Conservation in first introns is positively associated with the number of exons within genes and the presence of regulatory epigenetic signals.

Additionally, certain transcription factor binding motifs are enriched in first introns [ 61 ]. Simian virus 40 late transcripts lacking excisable intervening sequences are defective in both stability in the nucleus and transport to the cytoplasm.
