Gene Description APOBEC3G, apolipoprotein B mRNA editing enzyme, catalytic polypeptide-like 3G, is a cytidine deaminase that induces C-to-U mutations in DNA, functioning in host defense against retroviruses and to inhibit retrotransposons (PMID: 22001110). APOBEC3G expression correlates with poor prognosis in colon cancer patients with hepatic metastasis (PMID: 24753761) and overexpression has been observed in uterine cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (PMID: 28590025).
