Modification and Editing of Rna

Front Cover
ASM Press, 1998 - Medical - 596 pages
This new volume examines the various aspects of posttranscriptional RNA processing, including biosynthetic, genetic, and functional aspects of nucleoside modification and editing by nucleoside conversion as well as by nucleoside insertion/deletion.

Written by leading researchers in the field, it includes descriptions of the different types of modification and editing, identification of the corresponding enzymes, discussion of cis- and trans-acting sequences, machineries, mechanisms, cellular locations, the biological role of individual modified or edited bases, involvement in diseases like cancer and AIDS, and possible evolutionary connections between different processes.

Modification and Editing of RNA is a valuable reference for researchers, teachers, and students and will be a useful tool for the planning of future research to solve the many questions that remain.
