DAG for GO:0000184id: GO:0000184

name: nuclear-transcribed mRNA catabolic process, nonsense-mediated decay
namespace: biological_process
def: "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." [GOC:krc, GOC:ma, PMID:10025395]
