What did we learn so far? Group II self-splicing introns have a structure similar to that of spliceosomes. For long transcriptional units, splicing begins as the pre-mRNA is still being transcribed. Cleavage and polyadenylation occur after the poly(A) site is transcribed. Alternative splicing involves sequence-specific RNA binding proteins that can promote, or block, recognition of a splice site by components associated with the spliceosome.
