Method "[Researchers used properties] of DRB to develop a method to reversibly block gene transcription in cultured human cells. [They] incubated the cells for various times with DRB. [They] then prepared total RNA from the cultures and assayed for the levels of unspliced pre-mRNA for several genes."
Comments "An unexpected finding of [researchers'] study is that splicing occurred at a similar rate for several U2-dependent introns spanning a wide range of sizes. [They] found lag times for splicing of 5–10 min for introns ranging from 1.2 kb to 240 kb. These times represent the time, after synthesis of the downstream exon, for the appearance of the spliced exons. The splicing rates for small introns agree well with previous measurements (refs 19, 20)."
