Also know, how are introns and exons difference?
Exons are termed as nucleic acid sequences represented in the RNA molecule. Introns are the nucleotide sequences found within the genes that are removed through RNA splicing. In other words, exons are coding areas, whereas, introns are non-coding areas.
Also Know, are introns and exons the same size? The exons of these genes do not show very marked variation in size and can be classified into three major discrete and two minor additional size groups, whereas individual introns vary considerably in size within and between genes.
Herein, can introns be exons?
In other words, Introns are noncoding regions of an RNA transcript, or the DNA encoding it, which are eliminated by splicing before translation. Sequences that are joined together in the final mature RNA after RNA splicing are exons.
What is an exon in DNA?
An exon is any part of a gene that will encode a part of the final mature RNA produced by that gene after introns have been removed by RNA splicing. The term exon refers to both the DNA sequence within a gene and to the corresponding sequence in RNA transcripts.
