Inteins

What are inteins? Doug mentioned them to me today, and I had never heard of them. The short answer is that they are like introns, but in proteins. They splice themselves out of their host protein, and they only exist in single celled organisms, AFAIK. I think this pretty much means we have seen everything possible happen in biology now, bar reverse translation, which I am still not convinced does not exist. I can't find any really good reviews, but this paper is OK.
