Group II introns: versatile ribozymes and retroelements.


Group II introns are catalytic RNAs (ribozymes) and retroelements found in the genomes of bacteria, archaebacteria, and organelles of some eukaryotes. The prototypical retroelement form consists of a structurally conserved RNA and a multidomain reverse transcriptase protein, which interact with each other to mediate splicing and mobility reactions.
