Data from: Ribosome profiling reveals pervasive and regulated stop codon readthrough in Drosophila melanogaster

Joshua G. Dunn, Catherine K. Foo, Nicolette G. Belletier, Elizabeth R. Gavis & Jonathan S. Weissman
Ribosomes can read through stop codons in a regulated manner, elongating rather than terminating the nascent peptide. Stop codon readthrough is essential to diverse viruses, and phylogenetically predicted to occur in a few hundred genes in Drosophila melanogaster, but the importance of regulated readthrough in eukaryotes remains largely unexplored. Here, we present a ribosome profiling assay (deep sequencing of ribosome-protected mRNA fragments) for Drosophila melanogaster, and provide the first genome-wide experimental analysis of readthrough.
