Hiller M, Platzer M. Widespread and subtle: alternative splicing at short-distance tandem sites. Trends Genet. 2008;24:246-55 pubmed publisher
..Stochastic splice site selection seems to play a major role in these processes. Here, we review recent progress in understanding functional and evolutionary aspects as well as the mechanism of splicing at short-distance tandem sites. ..
