Do exon deletions in C.elegans mutants necessarily result in nonsense mediated decay of the transcript?

I am trying to write out my research proposal about a project in C.elegans. There are multiple mutants of the factor that I want to study, each with different mutations. I know that a mutation that ...

Consensus sequence for selection of initiation codon in eukaryotes

In bacteria the AUG (or other) codon at which translation of mRNA is initiated is preceded at a precise distance by a sequence known as the Shine and Dalgarno sequence, to which the 30S subunit ...

Confusion about the role of capping and polyadenylation in nuclear transport

Before termination stage of transcription a GMP cap is added to the 5' end and poly-A tail to 3' end of mRNA. The link(http://sciencing.com/role-rna-polyadenylation-5434666.html) says: The poly(A) ...

How often does pre-mRNA processing lead to midstream off-frame errors in eukaryotic mRNAs?

As I understand it, the splicing of introns from pre-mRNAs is not incredibly precise. I've only ever seen nucleotide position ranges given in any description of the involved processes. Since there is ...

Can splicing factors control an alternative splicing of a single gene?

So far my understanding of alternative splicing is as follows: Let A, B, C, ... stand for genes of a cell's genome. When a gene is transcribed to pre-mRNA, it will contain exons and introns: pre-...
