Concept

Problem: Which of the following is a characteristic of RNA splicing in Eukaryotes?a. It involves recognition of sequence-specific intron/exon boundary sites by cytoplasmic proteins.b. Exon/intron boundaries are typically characterized by a 5' GU splice junction and a 3' AG splice junction.c. It involves removal of introns from a gene sequence followed by transcription and subsequent splicing of exons.d. After splicing occurs, the U1, U2, U5, U6 snRNP complex removes remaining exons for degradation.
