Guide RNA - Overview of GRNA-directed Editing
... mitochondrial RNA modification process known as "RNA editing" ... insertion and deletion of uridine residues at precise sites which create an open reading frame that is translated into a mitochondrial protein homologous to mitochondrial proteins from other cells ... and deletions are mediated by short guide RNA (gRNAs) which encode the editing information in the form of complementary sequences (allowing GU as well as GC base pairs) ...
GRIK2 - RNA Editing - Consequences - Function
... Editing plays a role in the electrophysiology of the channel ... Editing at the Q/R site has been deemed to be nonessential in GluR-6 ... Mice lacking the Q/R site are capable of long term potentiation and are more susceptible to kainate induced seizures ...
GRIK1 - RNA Editing - Consequences - Function
... The editing site is found within the second intracellular domain ... It is thought that editing affects the permeability of the receptor to CA2+ ... Editing of the Q/R site is thought to reduce the permeability of the channel to Ca2+ RNA editing of the Q/R site can effect inhibition of the channel by membrane ...
GABRA3 - RNA Editing - Location
... The editing site was previously believed to be a sing nucleotide polymorphism ... The editing site is found iat amino acid 5 of transmembrane domain 3 of exon 9 ... interrupted by three bulges and a mismatch at the editing site.The double stranded region is 22 base pairs in length ...
GRIA2 - RNA Editing - Consequences - Function
... RNA editing of the GluR-2 (GluR-B) pre-mRNA is the best-characterised example of A-to-I editing ... many important events in the CNS, including long-term potentiation.(104) Since editing occurs in nearly 100% of transcripts and is necessary for life, it is often wondered why edited GluR-B is not ... RNA editing at the Q/R site is thought to alter the permeability of the channel rendering it impermeable to Ca2+ ...

Famous quotes containing the words site and/or editing:

    The site of the true bottomless financial pit is the toy store. It’s amazing how much a few pieces of plastic and paper will sell for if the purchasers are parents or grandparent, especially when the manufacturers claim their product improves a child’s intellectual or physical development.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    In this century the writer has carried on a conversation with madness. We might almost say of the twentieth-century writer that he aspires to madness. Some have made it, of course, and they hold special places in our regard. To a writer, madness is a final distillation of self, a final editing down. It’s the drowning out of false voices.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)
