RNA editing at a limited number of sites is sufficient to prevent MDA5 activation in the mouse brain.

PLoS Genet 2021 May 13;17(5):e1009516. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of RNA Biology and Neuroscience, Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University, Suita, Japan.

Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA 1 (ADAR1), an enzyme responsible for adenosine-to-inosine RNA editing, is composed of two isoforms: nuclear p110 and cytoplasmic p150. Deletion of Adar1 or Adar1 p150 genes in mice results in embryonic lethality with overexpression of interferon-stimulating genes (ISGs), caused by the aberrant recognition of unedited endogenous transcripts by melanoma differentiation-associated protein 5 (MDA5). However, among numerous RNA editing sites, how many RNA sites require editing, especially by ADAR1 p150, to avoid MDA5 activation and whether ADAR1 p110 contributes to this function remains elusive.
