adenosine deaminase RNA specific


ENTREZID: 103 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 1q21.3

OMIM: 615590 | 615537 | 602192


Summary Entrez
This gene encodes the enzyme responsible for RNA editing by site-specific deamination of adenosines. This enzyme destabilizes double-stranded RNA through conversion of adenosine to inosine. Mutations in this gene have been associated with dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]
