Functions of the nonsense-mediated mRNA decay pathway in Drosophila development.

I use this this paper in my graduate genetics course to illustrate techniques for analysis of gene expression in Drosophila.  It's also a very nice example of serendipity, whereby mutations in a set of genes for a fundamental process (nonsense-mediated decay) were discovered while looking for something else entirely.
