A novel spliceosome-mediated trans-splicing can change our view on genome complexity of the divergent eukaryote Giardia intestinalis

Abstract

Although spliceosomal introns are an abundant landmark in eukaryotic genomes, the nuclear genome of the divergent eukaryote Giardia intestinalis, the causative agent of giardiasis, has been considered as “intron-poor” with only five canonical (cis-spliced) introns. However, three research groups (including ours) have independently reported a novel class of… (More)
