Term Name: nuclear-transcribed mRNA catabolic process, nonsense-mediated decay Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • mRNA breakdown, nonsense-mediated decay
  • mRNA catabolic process, nonsense-mediated
  • mRNA catabolism, nonsense-mediated
  • mRNA degradation, nonsense-mediated decay
  • nonsense-mediated mRNA decay
  • nuclear mRNA catabolic process, nonsense-mediated decay
Definition: The nonsense-mediated decay pathway for nuclear-transcribed mRNAs degrades mRNAs in which an amino-acid codon has changed to a nonsense codon; this prevents the translation of such mRNAs into truncated, and potentially harmful, proteins.10025395
