According to this Wikipedia article, tmRNA is only found in bacteria, with its purpose being to “rescue stalled ribosomes”.

This brings me to the question of is there a eukaryotic equivalent of this RNA? If not, how do eukaryotic cells (or any other type of cell) prevent or stop stalled ribosomes?

Every time I search for “eukaryotic rescuing stalled ribosomes”, I am constantly only presented with references to tmRNA in E. Coli.
