Messenger RNA editing of transcripts encoding voltage-sensitive ion channels has not been extensively analyzed--least of all in Drosophila, for which several channel-encoding genes are known. Previous sequence studies of D. melanogaster's cacophony gene, which encodes an alpha 1 calcium-channel subunit called Dmca1A, suggested that several nucleotides within the ORF of the primary transcript are edited such that "A-to-G" substitutions occur (these two nucleotides being the adenine that is found… CONTINUE READING
