RNA editing of the Drosophila para Na(+) channel transcript. Evolutionary conservation and developmental regulation.

Abstract

Post-transcriptional editing of pre-mRNAs through the action of dsRNA adenosine deaminases results in the modification of particular adenosine (A) residues to inosine (I), which can alter the coding potential of the modified transcripts. We describe here three sites in the para transcript, which encodes the major voltage-activated Na(+) channel polypeptide… (More)
