NMD functions both in RNA surveillance and in gene regulation. Several features of mRNA transcripts can mark the transcripts as substrates for degradation by NMD. Green boxes, exons; lines, introns; potential splicing events are shown by blue or purple lines; genetic mutations and transcriptional aberrations are denoted with stars. The translation start site (ATG) is marked by arrows and stop codons are marked by red circles
