GeneCards Summary for ENDOV Gene
ENDOV (Endonuclease V) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include magnesium ion binding and endodeoxyribonuclease activity, producing 5-phosphomonoesters.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ENDOV Gene
Endoribonuclease that specifically cleaves inosine-containing RNAs: cleaves RNA at the second phosphodiester bond 3 to inosine. Has strong preference for single-stranded RNAs (ssRNAs) toward double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs). Cleaves mRNAs and tRNAs containing inosine. Also able to cleave structure-specific dsRNA substrates containing the specific sites 5-IIUI-3 and 5-UIUU-3. Inosine is present in a number of RNAs following editing; the function of inosine-specific endoribonuclease is still unclear: it could either play a regulatory role in edited RNAs, or be involved in antiviral response by removing the hyperedited long viral dsRNA genome that has undergone A-to-I editing. Binds branched DNA structures.
