- ... Diverse alternative splicing isoforms play an important role in immune diversity and specificity. Their role in molluscan host-defense is however poorly understood. We characterized two alternative isoforms of tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor 3 (TRAF3) in the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, which were named CgTRAF3-S and CgTRAF3-L. An intron was retained in CgTRAF3-L, introducin ...
