Sequence changes introduced by alternative splicing and gene duplication are usually different. Shown here is the location and nature (using a hydrophobicity scale) of the differences between alternative splicing isoforms of MAPK9 (left), and between MAPK9 and the paralogs MAPK10 (center) and MAPK13 (right) (see Talavera et al).
