    Please explain why the paper "Lessons learned from next-generation sequencing in head and neck cancer" by Loyo et al in Head & Neck 35, 454 (march 2013) states

    "Tumor protein [gene] p53 is made of 11 exons, of which the first is noncoding...".  

    It appears to me that Exons are any part of the DNA which encode for RNA, WHETHER OR NOT that RNA is an mRNA, one that eventually yields a protein.
