Evolutionary Genetics : Smells like a Pseudo-pseudogene

Stensmyr, Marcus C. LU (2016) In Current Biology 26(24). p.1294-1296
Abstract

A new study reports the presence of a chemosensory pseudogene in Drosophila sechellia, which in spite of carrying a premature stop-codon nevertheless encodes a fully functional and full-length protein. Such ‘pseudo-pseudogenes’ might well be a widespread phenomenon.
