Gene: Adar (adenosine deaminase, RNA-specific) Mus musculus
Symbol: Adar
Name: adenosine deaminase, RNA-specific
Description: Exhibits double-stranded RNA adenosine deaminase activity. Involved in several processes, including immune system development; regulation of viral genome replication; and response to virus. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleolus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome and dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria. Orthologous to human ADAR (adenosine deaminase RNA specific); PARTICIPATES IN microRNA pathway; influenza A pathway; measles pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
