While a large number of studies on alternative splicing of specific genes have been reported in the literature, the general mechanism that regulates alternative splicing has not yet been clearly understood. In this study, we systematically aligned each pair of the 21,000 cDNA sequences of M. musculus, searched for putative alternative splicing patterns, and constructed a list of potential alternative splicing sites. Two cDNAs are suspected to be alternatively spliced originating from the common gene, if they share most of the region with a high degree of sequence homology but parts of the sequences are very distinctive or deleted in either cDNA.

The list contains the following information, 1) expressed tissue 2) splicing position, and 3) alternative splicing type. Using this dataset, we also analyzed the length of alternatively spliced sequences, as well as the consensus nucleotide patterns around the splice sites
