This Week in Cell

Protein isoforms generated through alternative splicing don't always interact with the same targets, as researchers from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute report in Cell. Marc Vidal and his colleagues cloned full-length open reading frames of alternatively spliced transcripts for nearly 1,500 human genes. Then, using protein-protein interaction profiling, they compared the pairs to find that they only shared about half their targets.
