The Nucleus and its Functional Domains

ID #1201

What are splicing factors and how do they relate to chromatin and domains?

snRNPs are splicing factors. They remove introns and splice together exons from eukaryotic messenger RNAs. Since they are not DNA, they don't "live" in a chromosomal territory, but they are in the nucleus, so we'd find them in an interchromosomal domain.
