snRNPs recognize ...
introns and 5R proteins
what makes up spliceosome that splices pre-mRNA befor it leaves the nucleus?
Splicing in the nucleus can be ____ or ___transcriptional
co or post
Splicing is RNA ______, which involves 2 transesterifications.
what is the benefit of RNA splicing?
no energy required for the chemical reaction (but trans factors need energy)

branch pt. to phosphate
the branch point connects the 5' A, the 3' O on phosphate and the 2' oh to create a ...
What are the 6 steps in splicing?
1) 5R proteins define exons
2) U1 snRNP binds (proteins associated with 5R proteins and U1 RNA BPs at 5' splice junction of intron)
3) U2 snRNP Associates snRNP base pairs around branch point A (which is never base paired)
4) Triple snRNP associate with proteins around there, but mostly introns (U4/U6 snRNP
: U4 bps to U6 near 3' of 5' exon and U5 snRNP: binds on intron close to 3' exon)
5) U4 unwindes from U6 (catalytic RNA that stars chemical mechanism)
6) Splicing begins
