A novel POC1A variant in an alternatively spliced exon causes classic SOFT syndrome: clinical presentation of seven patients

Alternative splicing of genes usually generates several isoforms. These may code for slightly differing proteins, the disease relevance of which is often not clear. Researchers from CENTOGENE, by reporting a representative example, emphasized the resulting challenges in a recent study. They published their findings in the Journal of Human Genetics.
