Genetic Dissection of Nonsense-Mediated mRNA Decay in Drosophila

Jonathan Owen Nelson
The nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) pathway functions as a quality control mechanism and a feature of post-transcriptional gene regulation. NMD degrades mRNAs containing premature termination codons (PTCs) to prevent the production of potentially harmful truncated proteins, and it also destroys many error-free endogenous mRNAs to limit the expression of these genes. NMD is critical for viability in most complex organisms, highlighting the importance of this pathway; however, it is unknown which of the two NMD...
