An interesting element of eukaryotic genomes is the large quantity of non-coding intervening sequences commonly known as introns, which regularly interrupt functional genes and therefore must be removed prior to the use of genetic information by the cell. After splicing, the mature RNA is exported from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. Any error in the process of recognition and removal of introns, or splicing, would lead to change in genetic message and thus has potentially catastrophic… CONTINUE READING
