It has been proposed that yeast and Xenopus splicing endonucleases initially recognize features in the mature tRNA domain common to all tRNA species and that the sequence and structure of the intron are only minor determinants of splice-site selection. In accordance with this postulation, we show that yeast endonuclease splices heterologous pre-tRNA(Tyr) species from vertebrates and plants which differ in their mature domains and intron secondary structures. In contrast, wheat germ splicing… CONTINUE READING
