Functioni

Specifically recognizes and binds N6-methyladenosine (m6A)-containing RNAs, and regulates mRNA stability (PubMed:24284625, PubMed:26046440, PubMed:26318451). M6A is a modification present at internal sites of mRNAs and some non-coding RNAs and plays a role in the efficiency of mRNA splicing, processing and stability (PubMed:22575960, PubMed:24284625, PubMed:25412658, PubMed:25412661). Acts as a regulator of mRNA stability: binding to m6A-containing mRNAs results in the localization to mRNA decay sites, such as processing bodies (P-bodies), leading to mRNA degradation (PubMed:24284625, PubMed:26046440). Also acts as a promoter of cap-independent mRNA translation following heat shock stress: upon stress, relocalizes to the nucleus and specifically binds mRNAs with some m6A methylation mark at their 5'-UTR, protecting demethylation of mRNAs by FTO, thereby promoting cap-independent mRNA translation (PubMed:26458103).7 Publications
