In the United States, after the prosecution and defence witness lists are submitted as part of discovery, are the sides permitted to modify these lists at any time?

For example, if either side realizes that one of their witnesses has come across information that invalidates what they were going to testify to, can that side simply remove that witness from the list, and state that the witness(es) are no longer going to be called to testify?

Side question: Is it universal across all states that witness lists are required as part of discovery?
