- ... Pre‐messenger RNA (pre‐mRNA) splicing is essential in eukaryotic cells. In animals and yeasts, the DEAH‐box RNA‐dependent ATPase Prp16 mediates conformational change of the spliceosome, thereby facilitating pre‐mRNA splicing. In yeasts, Prp16 also plays an important role in splicing fidelity. Conversely, PRP16 orthologs in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and nematode do not have an important role in gen ...
