    ..A comparison of U11 snRNAs that we have identified from vertebrates, plants, and insects, suggests that an evolutionarily divergent U11 snRNA may be unique to Drosophila and not characteristic of insects in general. ..

    ..We conclude that this combination of microarray and in situ hybridization techniques is a simple but powerful experimental design for the genome-wide identification of genes coding for germ plasm localized transcripts. ..

    ..Loss of U12 introns or the genes containing them is more common than conversion to the U2-type. The degeneracy of U12-type terminal dinucleotides among natural U12-type introns is higher than previously thought. ..

    ..These findings have major implications for SMA etiology because they show that SMN's role in snRNP biogenesis can be uncoupled from the organismal viability and locomotor defects. ..
