Table 2 Occurrence of variable internal tandem repeats within coding and non-coding transcripts

From: Tandem repeats modify the structure of human genes hosted in segmental duplications

    Coding sequences
Modification Non-coding RNAs UTRs ITR unit (bp) In-frame Out of frame
Exon (53) 10 13 < 40 (9-39) 14 3
    > 60 (63-228) 9 4
Intron (27) 9 8 < 40 (9-30) 3 0
    > 60 (62-126) 6 1
  1. The number of ITR modifications localized in non-coding mRNAs, untranslated regions (UTRs), and coding sequences is reported. For ITRs lying within coding sequences, the length of the ITR unit in base pairs and the effect on the reading frame of the encoded proteins are also shown.
