Definition English:   A process whereby multiple RNA transcripts are generated from a single gene. Alternative splicing involves the splicing together of other possible sets of EXONS during the processing of some, but not all, transcripts of the gene. Thus a particular exon may be connected to any one of several alternative exons to form a mature RNA. The alternative forms of mature MESSENGER RNA produce PROTEIN ISOFORMS in which one part of the isoforms is common while the other parts are different. 
Indexing Annotation English:   for NESTED TRANSCRIPTS also index the RNA; do not confuse with NESTED GENES; for nested primers use NESTED PCR; (POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION)
