Gene structures and alternatively spliced exons of dynactin subunits.The gene structures including alternatively spliced exons of the dynactin subunits of Homo sapiens were reconstructed with WebScipio. The colour coding is the same as in Figure 2A) The scheme shows the gene structure of dynactin2 (p50) consisting of 16 exons including the differentially included exons 3 and 4. B) Gene structure of dynactin3 (7 exons). For dynactin3, pseudo-transcripts were identified (for detailed information see Additional File 4). C) The dynactin4 (p62) gene is comprised of 14 exons of which exon 6 is alternatively spliced. E) and F) Gene structures of dynactin5 (6 exons) and dynactin6 (7 exons), respectively.
