This figure shows both of the HPS gene transcripts that result from alternative splicing (black line). The light blue represents the common coding sequences for both transcripts. The light blue and dark blue represents the short transcipt (1.5 kb). The light blue and the red represents the large transcript (3.6 kb). Stripped regions represent the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of the transcipt. Missense mutations are on the top and nonsense, frameshift and splice site mutations are on the bottom.
GenBank Accession for short transcript (U96721)
