Summary:

NameLeukemia (A:m6A)
Description"METTL3 is overexpressed in AML; Depletion of METTL3 induces cell differentiation and apoptosis and delays leukemia progression; m6A promotes translation of c-MYC, BCL2, PTEN mRNAs in AML. m6A depletion may activate the PI3K/AKT pathway."
Related RNA reactionA:m6A
Found in RNAmRNA
Modified Transcriptc-MYC, BCL2 and PTEN (acute myeloid leukemia)
Mapping TechnologymiCLIP
Quantification techniques"TLC (thin layer chromatography); MeRIP-qPCR"
