Since the discovery of Prp16, a spliceosomal ATPase that alters the fidelity of splicing, many other ATPases associated with the spliceosome have been postulated to work similarly. The finding that Prp22, a DEAH-box ATPase, functions as a fidelity factor for the second step of splicing supports this hypothesis.
