GeneID: 269


Names

Common Name: ADAR Type: Gene
Chromosome: 1 (NC_000001.11) Locus: NG_011844.2 (ADAR)
HUGO Symbol: ADAR Full Name: adenosine deaminase RNA specific
Exons: 15 Introns: 14

Description:
ADAR (RNA-specific adenosine deaminase) encodes the enzyme responsible for RNA editing by site-specific deamination of adenosines. This enzyme destabilizes double-stranded RNA through conversion of adenosine to inosine. Mutations in this gene have been associated with dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria. A variation in ADAR associated with Hb F response to hydroxyurea in sickle cell disease cohorts.

Synonyms: IFI4 , G1P1
