Abstract

Double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) is often formed in the nuclei of mammalian cells, but in this compartment it does not induce the effects characteristic of cytoplasmic dsRNA. Rather, recent work has suggested that nuclear dsRNA is a target for the ADAR class of enzymes, which deaminate adenosines to inosines. Further, there are a number of distinct fates of such edited RNA, including nuclear retention and perhaps also gene silencing.
