Due to alternative RNA splicing, it isn't uncommon to ultimately find multiple gene products expressed from one gene in eukaryotes. I'm looking for a reference value for the average number of final gene products expressed per gene for:
- ... a particular eukaryote (preferably humans).
This can't be too hard to do for one species like humans. I would expect the following formula to provide me with a rough answer. Is this correct?
(number of distinct proteins + numbers of distinct non-translated RNAs) / number of genes
- ... all eukaryotes as a whole.
This one is slightly more problematic.
