ENZYME entry: EC 3.5.4.36

Accepted Name
mRNA(cytosine(6666)) deaminase.
Alternative Name(s)
Apolipoprotein B mRNA editing enzyme.
Reaction catalysed
Cytosine(6666) in apolipoprotein B mRNA + H(2)O <=> uracil(6666) in apolipoprotein B mRNA + NH(3)
Comment(s)
  • The apolipoprotein B mRNA editing enzyme complex catalyzes the editing of apolipoprotein B mRNA at cytidine(6666) to uridine, thereby transforming the codon for glutamine-2153 to a termination codon.
  • Editing results in translation of a truncated apolipoprotein B isoform (apoB-48) with distinct functions in lipid transport.
  • The catalytic component (APOBEC-1) contains zinc at the active site.
