Literature associating SMG7 and progressive familial heart block type II
SMG7 nonsense mediated mRNA decay factor; Plays a role in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Recruits UPF1 to cytoplasmic mRNA decay bodies. Together with SMG5 is thought to provide a link to the mRNA degradation machinery involving exonucleolytic pathways, and to serve as an adapter for UPF1 to protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A), thereby triggering UPF1 dephosphorylation.
Synonyms: SMG7, SMG7p, hSMG7, B1ALB4, B4DLY0 ...
