The Pre-mRNA Splicing Is One Of Several Essential Steps

The Pre-mRNA Splicing Is One Of Several Essential Steps

The study focuses on the pre-mRNA splicing process where regions in the pre-mRNA that do not encode proteins  are removed by the spliceosome, a huge protein-RNA complex. Remaining sections of the RNA transcript, called exons, are then stuck back together. Pre-mRNA splicing is one of several essential steps that convert pre-mRNAs into mature mRNA (messenger…
