Transcription and RNA Processing

ID #2062

conserved sequences at both ends mark splice point and that the rest of the intron sequence, which is usually not important, is spliced out by snRNPs. So this means that snNRPs bind to specific conserved sequences during RNA splicing. But does this mean that the conserved sequences are spliced out?

Yes, most of the "important" bases for the intron/exon splice junction are in the intron itself and are therefore removed.
