Some pet- (or mit-) mutations impeding the splicing of one or several intron(s) of the yeast mitochondrial pre-mRNA(s) are suppressed in vivo by the DNA deletion of these introns. We have genetically demonstrated that introns aI1 and/or aI2 of the cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 gene are necessary for this deletion process. The facts that adjacent introns are simultaneously deleted and that, in the pet- (or mit-) mutants which easily revert by intron deletion, the splicing of the introns they… CONTINUE READING
