26687548 These findings indicate that NSun2-mediated mRNA methylation regulates p27 and CDK1 levels during replicative senescence.
26427135 Report frequencies of short tandem repeat markers linked to TUSC3 (MRT7) or NSUN2 (MRT5) genes used for homozygosity mapping of recessive intellectual disability.
26391950 By methylating the CDK1 mRNA at the 3'UTR, NSun2 enhances the translation of CDK1, thereby influencing entry into and the progression of the cell division cycle.

22541562 The substitution of glycine to arginine at position 679 impairs the proper cellular localization of NSUN2 to the nucleolus. This mutation causes autosomal-recessive intellectual disability.
22541559 A deficiency in NSUN2 function causes intellectual disability in individuals homozygous for these mutations.
22395603 findings show that NSun2, a transfer RNA methyltransferase, inhibits the turnover of p16(INK4) mRNA; conclude that NSun2-mediated methylation of the p16 3'UTR is a novel mechanism to stabilize p16 mRNA
22136356 Increased gene copy number and high protein expression of NSUN2 is associated with cancers.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)

19740597 was extensive copy number gain, and increased mRNA and protein levels, of Misu in approximately one third of breast cancer cell lines and primary tumours examined, irrespective of tumour subtype
19596847 These results suggest a novel mechanism by which c-Myc promotes proliferation by stabilizing the mitotic spindle in fast-dividing cells via Misu and NuSAP.
17215513 These results indicate that Aurora-B participates to regulate the assembly of nucleolar RNA-processing machinery and the RNA methyltransferase activity of NSUN2 via phosphorylation at Ser139 during mitosis.
17071714 First report showing intron-dependent methylation of human pre-tRNA Leu(CAA) and identification of human gene encoding tRNA methylase(Trm4) responsible for this reaction.
