Messenger RNA (mRNA) maturation is a crucial step in gene expression, requiring the coordinated action of several macromolecular complexes. The most dramatic maturation event is the removal of introns from pre-mRNA by the spliceosome, a large and dynamic ribonucleoprotein enzyme. We apply structural and functional methods to elucidate the molecular basis of spliceosome regulation and its coordination with other maturation events. Our goal is to obtain snapshots of the different stages of mRNA maturation to understand how a functional mRNA is produced.
