an mRNA surveillance mechanism After mRNA processing, most transcripts are exported to the cytoplasm for translation into protein
a pathway that degrades an mRNA that has a nonsense mutation prior to the last exon

A term used to describe how the theoretical value of an option 'erodes' or reduces with the passage of time. Time decay is specifically quantified by theta.
A theory of forgetting in which memory traces erode largely through the passage of time (presumably because of some metabolic events unfolding as time passes).
a change of plant or animal material back to nutrients When fallen leaves decay, they become part of the soil.
the process of gradually becoming inferior
a gradual decrease; as of stored charge or current
The breakdown of materials, chiefly by bacteria.
The breakdown of organic matter into simpler products e.g. macromolecules into smaller molecules.
The breakdown of organic matter into simpler compounds due to the digestive action of microorganisms such as bacteria or other decomposers.

The process of decreasing activity in a radionuclide.

deterioration of woody tissue by diseases.
Deterioration of plant tissue, including wood, by biological organisms. Wood decay can reduce the strength of a tree or branch.
Progressive deterioration of organic tissues, usually caused by fungal or bacterial organisms, resulting in loss of cell structure, strength, and function. In wood, the loss of structural strength.
