BACKGROUND The nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) pathway promotes the rapid degradation of mRNAs containing premature termination codons (PTCs). In yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the activity of the NMD pathway depends on the recognition of the PTC by the translational machinery. Translation termination factors eRF1 (Sup45) and eRF3 (Sup35) participate(More)
Eukaryotic cells possess a special mechanism for the degradation of mRNAs containing premature termination codons (PTCs), referred to as NMD (nonsense-mediated mRNA decay). The strength of this pathway depends on the recognition of the PTCs by translational machinery and the interaction of translation termination factors eRF1 and eRF3 with Upf1, Upf2 and(More)
