METTL16
RNA N6-adenosine-methyltransferase METTL16

Protein Summary
Description
RNA N6-methyltransferase that methylates adenosine residues at the N(6) position of a subset of RNAs and is involved in S-adenosyl-L-methionine homeostasis by regulating expression of MAT2A transcripts (PubMed:28525753, PubMed:30197299, PubMed:30197297). Able to N6-methylate a subset of mRNAs and U6 small nuclear RNAs (U6 snRNAs) (PubMed:28525753). In contrast to the METTL3-METTL14 heterodimer, only able to methylate a limited number of RNAs: requires both a 5'UACAGAGAA-3' nonamer sequence and a specific RNA structure (PubMed:28525753, PubMed:30197299, PubMed:30197297). Plays a key role in S-adenosyl-L-methionine homeostasis by mediating N6-methylation of MAT2A mRNAs, altering splicing and/or stability of MAT2A transcripts: in presence of S-adenosyl-L-methionine, binds the 3'-UTR region of MAT2A mRNA and specifically N6-methylates the first hairpin of MAT2A mRNA, impairing MAT2A expression (PubMed:28525753). In S-adenosyl-L-methionine-limiting conditions, binds the 3'-UTR region of MAT ...more
