ADAR editing in double-stranded UTRs and other noncoding RNA sequences

Trends in Biochemical Sciences

Apr 13, 2010

Heather A Hundley, Brenda L Bass

Abstract

ADARs are a family of enzymes, present in all animals, that convert adenosine to inosine within double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). Inosine and adenosine have different base-pairing properties, and thus, editing alters RNA structure, coding potential and splicing patterns. The first ADAR subst...read more

Interferon Signalling

Via interaction with their specific receptors, interferons (IFNs) activate signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) complexes. STAT activation initiates the classical Janus kinase-STAT (JAK-STAT) signaling pathway. In this pathway, JAKs associate with IFN receptors and, following receptor engagement with IFN, phosphorylate both STAT1 and STAT2. As a result, an IFN-stimulated gene factor 3 (ISGF3) complex forms—this contains STAT1, STAT2 and a third transcription factor called IRF9—and moves into the cell nucleus. Inside the nucleus, the ISGF3 complex binds to specific nucleotide sequences called IFN-stimulated response elements (ISREs) in the promoters of certain genes, known as IFN stimulated genes. Discover the latest research on interferon signalling here.
