Several recent studies have hypothesized that sense-antisense RNA-transcript pairs create dsRNA duplexes that undergo extensive A-to-I RNA editing. We studied human and mouse genomic antisense regions and found that the editing level in these areas is negligible. This observation questions the scope of sense-antisense duplexes formation in-vivo, which is the basis for several proposed regulatory mechanisms.
