This gene is a member of the cytidine deaminase gene family. It is one of seven related genes or pseudogenes found in a cluster thought to result from gene duplication on chromosome 22. Members of the cluster encode proteins that are structurally and functionally related to the C to U RNA-editing cytidine deaminase APOBEC1. The protein encoded by this gene lacks the zinc binding activity of other family members. The protein plays a role in immunity by restricting transmission of foreign DNA such as viruses. One mechanism of foreign DNA restriction is deamination of foreign double-stranded DNA cytidines to uridines which leads to DNA degradation. However other mechanisms are also thought to be involved as anti-viral effect is not dependent on deaminase activity. One allele of this gene results from the deletion of approximately 29.5 kb of sequence between this gene APOBEC3A and the adjacent gene APOBEC3B. The breakpoints of the deletion are within the two genes so the deletion allele is predicted to have the promoter and coding region of APOBEC3A but the 3' UTR of APOBEC3B.
