Event Description

"A Novel Role of the mRNA Surveillance Machinery in Maintaining Genetic Robustness" Mohamed El-Brolosy is a Ph.D. student in the laboratory of Dr. Didier Stainier. He discovered a novel translation-dependent pathway for altering the transcription of specific genes. In this pathway, the degradation of mRNAs carrying premature termination codons allows mRNA decay factors and/or decay intermediates to translocate to the nucleus and recruit chromatin modifiers, resulting in increased transcription of related genes (El-Brolosy et al., Nature 568, 193-197, 2019). This seminar is hosted by the RNA Biology Laboratory and will be available using Webex. Meeting number (access code): 739 872 868 Meeting password: RNA@b549on1206
