exon trapping

A technique used to identify exons with a specialized vector. The vector has two exons that are normal, spliced together in a transcript. Fragments of DNA can be inserted into the intron, and when the insert is an exon, the exon is spliced into the transcript, thereby giving a longer transcript that can be detected by Northern blot analysis.
