Double-stranded RNA-specific adenosine deaminase - P55266 (DSRAD_RAT)

 

Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

 
Function
Catalyzes the hydrolytic deamination of adenosine to inosine in double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) referred to as A-to-I RNA editing. This may affect gene expression and function in a number of ways that include mRNA translation by changing codons and hence the amino acid sequence of proteins; pre-mRNA splicing by altering splice site recognition sequences; RNA stability by changing sequences involved in nuclease recognition; genetic stability in the case of RNA virus genomes by changing sequences during viral RNA replication; and RNA structure-dependent activities such as microRNA production or targeting or protein-RNA interactions. Can edit both viral and cellular RNAs and can edit RNAs at multiple sites (hyper-editing) or at specific sites (site-specific editing). Its cellular RNA substrates include: bladder cancer-associated protein (BLCAP), neurotransmitter receptors for glutamate (GRIA2) and serotonin (HTR2C) and GABA receptor (GABRA3). Site-specific RNA editing of transcripts encoding these proteins results in amino acid substitutions which consequently alters their functional activities. Exhibits low-level editing at the GRIA2 Q/R site, but edits efficiently at the R/G site and HOTSPOT1. Does not affect polyomavirus replication but provides protection against virus-induced cytopathic effects. Essential for embryonic development and cell survival and plays a critical role in the maintenance of hematopoietic stem cells (By similarity). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Homodimer. Homodimerization is essential for its catalytic activity. Isoform 5 can form heterodimers with ADARB1/ADAR2. Isoform 1 interacts with ILF2/NF45 and ILF3/NF90. Binding to ILF3/NF90 up-regulates ILF3-mediated gene expression. Isoform 1 and isoform 5 (via DRBM 3 domain) interact with TNPO1. Isoform 5 (via DRBM domains) interacts with XPO5. Isoform 1 and isoform 5 can interact with EIF2AK2/PKR and UPF1. UniProt
Domain
The third dsRNA-binding domain (DRBM 3) contains an additional N-terminal alpha-helix that is part of a bi-partite nuclear localization signal, together with the sequence immediately C-terminal to DRBM 3. The presence of DRBM 3 is important to bring together the N-terminal and the C-terminal part of the bi-partite nuclear localization signal for import mediated by TNPO1. RNA binding interferes with nuclear import. UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
