mRNA surveillance mitigates genetic dominance … Mol Gen Genet. 1998 – PubMed – NCBI

July 19, 2014

Below is key ref.

## From Brenner talk at ISMB:

Argues that domain trunc prot have a dom. neg pheno.
(ex binding domain for reg & tf or sox10)

NMD fixes this; truncated case now looks like hemizyg.

## Related twitter dialogue:

Brenner: expl. how premature truncation is often a dominant neg. (ex SOX10), providing a rationalization for the purpose of NMD #ISMB #LBR01

Why would cells generate mRNA that are then immediately degraded by NMD? Brenner suggests that this process has a regulatory function #ISMB

@raarjr · Jul 13
Brenner: 50 nt rule accurately predicts NMD, and is prevalent in auto regulation.so what’s our ruler? #ismb
