Spliceosomal Proteins in Plants
The spliceosome is a large nuclear structure consisting of dynamically interacting RNAs and proteins. This chapter briefly reviews some of the known components and their interactions. Large-scale proteomics and gene expression studies may be required to unravel the many intricate mechanisms involved in splice site recognition and selection.
