Abstract When pre-mRNAs are spliced, a multi-component complex is deposited onto them, close to the sites of intron removal. New findings suggest that these exon-exon junction complexes and the complexes that bind mRNA caps are key effectors of the fate of spliced mRNAs and may regulate whether mRNAs containing premature stop codons are degraded.
