Editing of RNA could be a mechanism for reorganization.
In this case, it appears rather to be a regular control loop in the somatic branch of cephalopod nervous systems.
- Octopuses rewire their brains to adapt to seasonal temperature shifts.
- RNA editing octopuses rewire their brains to cope with drops in temperature.
I wonder if, conversely, mechanisms of the reorganization system as presently understood might sometimes participate in somatic homeostasis control loops.
RNA editing sites are found in other classes (e.g. insecta, mammalia) but little exploited. Only ~3% of human RNA ‘messages’ harbor a recoding site, and most are only weakly edited. See:
