AltA 350 (23.1%) 37 (32.2%) 1,785 (24.7%) 2,377 (19.5%)
AltP 21 (1.4%) 2 (1.7%) 106 (1.5%) 306 (2.5%)
ExonS 162 (10.7%) 10 (8.7%) 445 (6.2%) 1,332 (10.9%)
IntronR 778 (51.3%) 48 (41.7%) 4,062 (56.3%) 7,011 (57.5%)
Total 1,515 115 7,216 12,191
AS genes 1,107 (9.6%) 92 (2.8%) 4,497 (20.0%) 6,313 (20.3%)
  1. Percentages in parenthesis for each alternative splicing type are the portion relative to the total events. Percentages for AS genes are the portion of alternatively spliced genes relative to the total number of expressed genes (genes/TU) in Table 1.
  2. # Lotus data are based on the ESTs aligned to finished TACs (phase 3).
