The protein encoded by SAP18 associates with the EJC complex transiently, either during EJC assembly or during subsequent mRNA metabolism, but is not considered a core EJC subunit. The protein encoded by PYM1 is a regulator of the EJC that associates immediately upstream of the exon-exon junction on mRNAs and also acts as an EJC disassembly factor.
