"Metazoan cells have two pathways for intron removal involving the U2- and U12-type spliceosomes, which contain mostly nonoverlapping sets of small nuclear ribonucleoproteins.
"We show that in vitro splicing of a U12-type intron assembles an exon junction complex (EJC) that is comparably positioned and contains many of the same components as that deposited by the U2-type spliceosome. The presence of a U12-type intron downstream of a premature termination codon within an open reading frame (ORF)...
