The DEAD box RNA helicase (RH) proteins are homologs involved in diverse cellular functions in all of the organisms from prokaryotes to eukaryotes. Nevertheless, there is a lack of conservation in the splicing pattern in the 53 Arabidopsis thaliana (AtRHs), the 32 Caenorhabditis elegans (CeRHs) and the 29 Drosophila melanogaster (DmRHs) genes. Of the 153… CONTINUE READING
