Abstract

Parenteau et al. (2019) and Morgan et al. (2019) showed that a subset of introns can work as non-coding RNAs that trap the spliceosome and decrease global splicing upon nutrient depletion in yeast, providing a new example of the functionality of introns, molecules that were previously assumed to be useless.
