|Endometrial cancer (A:m6A)
|~70% of tumor samples from endometrial cancer patients exhibited decreased m6A levels due to either decreased expression of METTL3 or loss of function mutation in METTL14 (R298P). This generates a reduction in m6A mRNA methylation levels and an enhancement in proliferation and tumorigenicity. Reductions in m6A methylation lead to decreased expression of the negative AKT regulator PHLPP2 and increased expression of the positive AKT regulator mTORC2. Increased AKT activation is one of the main mediators of increased proliferation in cells.
