Transcription and RNA Processing

ID #2400

Do prokayotes not have exons since most of their DNA codes for protein or another RNA? It seemed like we mostly talked about splicing out exons for eukaryotes but not prokaryotes.


Yes, splicing is only done in eukaryotes. Since they don't process mRNA by splicing, prokaryotes don't really have exons or introns.
