Carnegie Mellon University research reveals how cells process large genes

...ately, recursive splicing could be responsible for thwarting molecular mishaps in the expression of large human genes associated with diseases like muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis and cancer. "We found that many large introns are removed by multiple recursive splicing steps," Lopez said. "These steps inv...
