Problem: Use the diagram provided to select the correct statement regarding RNA splicing.A) only coding introns are spliced together to make finished mRNAB)  a protective cap is put on the 5' end C) a string of adenines is put on the 3' end D) only coding exons are spliced together to make finished mRNA

FREE Expert Solution

RNA Splicing: involves removal of introns and recombining exons

introns (intervening sequences): do not code for proteins; usually contain regulatory regions for transcription

exons (expressed sequences): code for proteins
