RNA editing is a post-transcriptional modification in which a base is substituted by another one or inserted or deleted. In trypanosomatids, RNA editing is carried out by uridine insertion or deletion. A multiprotein complex, the editosome, trims the mitochondrial mRNA transcripts, and it consists of twenty know proteins out of which kinetoplastid RNA editing ligases 1 and 2 (KREL1 and KREL2) were subjects of this study.
