The catalytic core of the sunY intron of bacteriophage T4 is separated from its 3' exon by 837 nucleotides, most of which are part of an open reading frame (ORF). Here, we report that transcripts truncated within the sunY ORF self-splice in vitro to a variety of sites in the segment immediately 3' of the core. Recognition of these proximal splice sites is… CONTINUE READING
