RNA editing is a post-transcriptional process that changes the informational capacity within the RNA. These processes include alterations made by nucleotide deletion, insertion and base conversion. A to I and C to U conversion occurs in mammals and these editing events are catalysed by RNA binding deaminases. C to U editing of apoB mRNA was the first mammalian editing event to be identified. The minimal protein complex necessary for apoB mRNA editing has been determined and consists of APOBEC-1… CONTINUE READING
