Mobile introns review series
RNA catalysts that are mobile at the DNA level, as are most self-splicing group I and group II introns, are important from mechanistic, evolutionary and biotechnological standpoints. This first Mobile DNA review series on these elements focuses on their structure, function and evolution. The biotechnological utility of group I and group II Introns, as agents for gene targeting, are covered in the subsequent Mobile genetic elements in biotechnology series.
