  • FunctionConverts multiple adenosines to inosines and creates I/U mismatched base pairs in double-helical RNA substrates without apparent sequence specificity. Has been found to modify more frequently adenosines in AU-rich regions, probably due to the relative ease of melting A/U base pairs as compared to G/C pairs. Functions to modify viral RNA genomes and may be responsible for hypermutation of certain negative-stranded viruses. Edits the messenger RNAs for glutamate receptor (GLUR) subunits by site-selective adenosine deamination. Produces low-level editing at the GLUR-B Q/R site, but edits efficiently at the R/G site and HOTSPOT1. Binds to short interfering RNAs (siRNA) without editing them and suppresses siRNA-mediated RNA interference. Binds to ILF3/NF90 and up-regulates ILF3-mediated gene expression.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed, highest levels were found in brain and lung.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in ADAR are a cause of dyschromatosis symmetrical hereditaria (DSH) [MIM:127400]; also known as reticulate acropigmentation of Dohi. DSH is a pigmentary genodermatosis of autosomal dominant inheritance characterized by a mixture of hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules distributed on the dorsal parts of the hands and feet.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 A to I editase domain.
    Contains 2 DRADA repeats.
    Contains 3 DRBM (double-stranded RNA-binding) domains.
  • Post-translational
    Sumoylation reduces RNA-editing activity.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus > nucleolus. Isoform 1 is found predominantly in cytoplasm but appears to shuttle between the cytoplasm and nucleus. Isoform 5 is found exclusively in the nucleolus.
