Just for balance, here is an example of a single protein being constructed from two primary gene products (two separate genes involved) via protein splicing.
The answer is not simple - @shigeta mentioned some mechanisms leading to single gene-to-multi protein relationships arise - and the answer is certainly not short (there are thousands of these genes). But anyway "alternative splicing" seems to be the primary mechanism according to this article, so... Rather than listing all alternatively splicing gene, here ...
There are a large number of ways a protein variant can be produced by post translational modification. The question may seem obvious, but its really quite broad. I can start this out. I doubt I know all the ways a single transcript can produce variant proteins. A detailed description might be more like a review article than an answer here. First, ...
