RNA edits list
RNA editing is a post-transcriptional process in which the transcript is altered at specific locations by prior to translation. In chloroplast genomes, RNA editing seems to be restricted to land plants, with most editing events resulting in C to U changes, but U to C edits are also quite common in seedless land plants. Most chloroplast editing result in nonsynonymous changes to the RNA sequence, causing the eventual protein sequence to differ from that which would be predicted by the DNA sequence. The changes resulting from RNA editing include the creation of start codons and the conversion of stop codons to sense codons. Thus, knowledge of RNA editing is important to accurate genome annotation and essential for accurate prediction of protein sequences. The following list contains RNA edits as annotated in the Genbank files. The numbers only reflect the current number of entries stored in the database and may change when the database updates. You can also download an edited sequence from which a more accurate translation can be obtained.
