General description

Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA type 2 (ADAR2) is localized predominantly in the nucleus.
Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA type 2 (ADAR2), also known as adenosine deaminase, RNA specific B1 (ADARB1), is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 21q22.3. ADARB1 is characterized with two double-stranded RNA-binding domains and a deaminase domain involved in editing action.


Monoclonal Anti-ADAR2 antibody produced in mouse has been used in immunoblotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA type 2 (ADAR2) activity is directly involved in both cell cycle by slowing down cell growth rate at the S-G2 phase and in cell migration. Decrease in ADAR2 editing activity is linked to tumor malignancy (astrocytoma grade I-IV) in children.
Adenosine deaminase acting on RNA type 2 (ADAR2) enzyme plays a vital role in editing pre-mRNA of glutamate receptor B subunit. Combined effect of ADAR2 and HTR2C (5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 2C) variants contribute to the suicide attempt (SA) vulnerability in psychiatric patients. ADAR2 is a candidate gene for neurological diseases, such as bipolar affective disorder and epilepsy. Decrease in the activity of ADAR2 enzyme results in α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA) receptor-mediated death of motor neurons in mice. ADAR2 enzyme is expressed consistently in carcinomas and sarcomas and it is upregulated in lymphomas and seminomas when compared to normal tissues.
