Splicing takes place in the nucleus.D. Splicing produces mature mRNA by removing exons and joining introns together.E. Splicing is catalzed ribozymes in the spliceosome.

FREE Expert Solution

RNA splicing is a post-transcriptional mRNA alteration. This is done to edit the non-coding sequences out of the RNA for the creation of the mature mRNA product. This process is carried out using a large protein complex known as spliceosome.
