DAG for GO:0006388id: GO:0006388

name: tRNA splicing, via endonucleolytic cleavage and ligation
namespace: biological_process
def: "Splicing of tRNA substrates via recognition of the folded RNA structure that brings the 5' and 3' splice sites into proximity and cleavage of the RNA at both the 3' and 5' splice sites by an endonucleolytic mechanism, followed by ligation of the exons." [GOC:krc, ISBN:0879695897, PMID:9582290]
comment: Note that while typically associated with tRNA splicing, splicing via endonucleolytic cleavages and subsequent ligation of the free exon ends is known to be used for some non-tRNA substrates, e.g. HAC1 (YFL031W) in S. cerevisiae and an intron in the 23S rRNA of the Archaeal species Desulfurococcus mobilis.
