Abstract

In this issue of Molecular Cell, Stevens et al. purify a large particle from yeast extracts that contains all five of the U snRNPs required for pre-mRNA splicing. The existence of this "penta-snRNP" suggests the provocative possibility that spliceosome assembly does not depend upon a pre-mRNA substrate.
