Spliceosome "cut and paste" introns and exons

  1. Jan 31, 2016 #1
    How does the spliceosome know where to splice on the RNA strand? It will remove the introns and splice the exons together but how does it know where to slice?

    Thank You! The book you referenced is awesome. DNA/RNA protein synthesis is spooky amazing to me.
