All I's on the RADAR: role of ADAR in gene regulation

FEBS Letters

May 18, 2018

Galina Shevchenko, Kevin V Morris

Abstract

Adenosine to inosine (A-to-I) editing is the most abundant form of RNA modification in mammalian cells, which is catalyzed by adenosine deaminase acting on the double-stranded RNA (ADAR) protein family. A-to-I editing is currently known to be involved in the regulation of the immune sys...read more
