Adenosine deaminases that act on RNA (ADARs) target double-stranded regions of precursor mRNAs (pre-mRNAs), noncoding RNAs, and viral RNAs, deaminating adenosines to create inosines (1 –3).Inosine is recognized as guanosine; thus, adenosine-to-inosine (A-to-I) editing in a pre-mRNA can alter codons and splice-forms, leading to multiple protein isoforms from a single gene.
