APOBEC-like, C-terminal (IPR007904)

Short name: APOBEC_C

Domain relationships



This domain is found at the C terminus of the Apolipoprotein B mRNA editing enzyme. Apobec-1 catalyzes C to U editing of apolipoprotein B (apoB) mRNA in the mammalian intestine. C to U RNA editing of mammalian apolipoprotein B (apoB) RNA is a site-specific posttranscriptional modification in which a single cytidine is enzymatically deaminated to uridine, thereby generating a UAA stop codon in the edited mRNA. The function of this domain is currently unknown.
