Sun S and Cleveland DW (2012) TDP-43 toxicity and the usefulness of junk. Nat Genet 44(12):1289-91
Abstract: A new study shows that loss of the lariat debranching enzyme Dbr1 suppresses TDP-43 toxicity. The accumulated intronic lariat RNAs, which are normally degraded after splicing, likely act as decoys to sequester TDP-43 away from binding to and disrupting functions of other RNAs.
