comment What are some examples of genes that code for multiple proteins?
The top hit for a Google search for "alternative splicing" is the Wikipedia article on alternative splicing, which includes several examples. I can't imagine that any textbook that covers alternative splicing would not also offer examples.

comment Collective term for both exons and introns
This isn't the word I'm looking for. The word I'm looking for will fill in the following blank: "The gene has 5 exons and 4 introns, so it has 9 ____". Splicing fragments is the best answer so far, I was just hoping there was a more concise term for it.
