The process in which the base sequence of the RNA transcript is changed by addition of bases to the RNA molecule or by chemical transform-ation of one base to another. This subverts the genetic information carried in the genes

A process responsible for changes in the final sequence of mRNA that are not coded in the DNA template. Excludes mRNA splicing and modifications to tRNA. Various kinds of editing are known, the commonest being cytidine (C) to uridine (U) substitution, though polyadenylation of mitochondrial mRNA and...

The term RNA editing describes those molecular processes in which the information content in an RNA molecule is altered through a chemical change in the base makeup. To date, such changes have been observed in tRNA, rRNA, mRNA and microRNA molecules of eukaryotes but not prokaryotes. RNA editing oc...
