Translational readthrough (TR) occurs when the ribosome decodes a stop codon as a sense codon, resulting in two protein isoforms synthesized from the same mRNA. TR is pervasive in eukaryotic organisms; however, its biological significance remains unclear. In this study, we quantify the TR potential of several candidate genes in Drosophila melanogaster and characterize the regulation of TR in the large Maf transcription factor Traffic jam (Tj). We used CRISPR/Cas9 generated mutant flies to showdoi:10.1101/2020.12.04.411694 fatcat:jghqwhxmarawdmetaevzcjgy7m
