RNAi is antagonized by A-->I hyper-editing.


RNA interference (RNAi) and adenosine to inosine conversion are both mechanisms that respond to double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) and have been suggested to have antiviral roles. RNAi involves processing of dsRNA to short interfering RNAs (siRNAs), which subsequently mediate degradation of the cognate mRNAs. Deamination of adenosines changes the coding capacity… (More)
