Figure 2. Conceptual translation of the CRYGS transcript containing the Mys cryptic splice insertion

Sequences from CRYGS exons 1 and 2 are in red. The translation begins with exon 1 sequences identical to gS, but, diverges in the insert sequence leading to a premature termination (first asterisk). The translation of exon 2 sequences is shown downstream. The alternative splice puts these sequences into a different reading frame which itself contains an upstream stop codon (second asterisk). Thus nothing resembling functional gS could be produced from this transcript.
