    • ZNF609 protein in myoblasts can be translated from circular RNAs (circRNAs). CircRNAs are generated by the joining of a 5-splice site with the 3-splice site of an upstream intron through back-splicing of pre-mRNAs, a non-canonical splicing process promoted by dsRNA structures across circularizing exons (PubMed:28344082).
