Tissue-specific alternative splicing of rat brain fructose 6-phosphate 2-kinase/fructose 2,6-bisphosphatase.

We have reported the occurrence of eight splice variants of rat brain fructose 6-phosphate 2-kinase/fructose 2,6-bisphosphatase (RB2K). In the present study, we quantified these splice variants in various tissues using a RNAse protection assay and found a tissue-specific pattern of alternative splicing of the RB2K gene. Splice variants containing exon F were specifically expressed in brain. Moreover, exons D and E were spliced in brain, skeletal muscle and heart. Consequently, eight, six, four and two splice variants were expressed in brain, skeletal muscle, heart and liver plus testis, respectively. These results suggest that distinct RB2K isoforms could be involved in regulation of glycolysis in a tissue-specific manner.[1]
