  • THE organization of eukaryotic genes into exons separated by introns has been considered as a primordial arrangement1,2 but because it does not exist in eubacterial genomes it may be that introns are relatively recent acquisitions3. A self-splicing group I intron has been found in cyanobacteria at the same position of the same gene (that encoding leucyl transfer RNA, UAA anticodon) as a similar group I intron of chloroplasts4,5, which indicates that this intron predates the invasion of… CONTINUE READING
