Abstract: Individual nucleotide changes in messenger RNA that produce different proteins from one gene are common in plants and protozoa. In mammals, RNA editing has been discovered only recently and in just a few instances. Two of these have revealed different mechanisms that accomplish important alterations to protein structure and function. Other know descrepancies between DNA and mRNA sequences may not be errors in sequencing, but indications that RNA editing is not as rare as previously thought.
