Term:translation termination pathway
go back to main search page
Accession:PW:0000582 term browser browse the term
Definition:Translation termination occurs when a stop codon is read, followed by splitting of the ribosomal subunits and their recycling. Ribosome recycling also happens in the case of aberrantly stalled ribosomes due to features of mRNA, absence of a stop codon or its premature presence. In this case mRNA surveillance mechanisms trigger appropriate mRNA decay pathways.
