GeneCards Summary for METTL14 Gene
METTL14 (Methyltransferase Like 14) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and mRNA Splicing - Major Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and mRNA (2-O-methyladenosine-N6-)-methyltransferase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for METTL14 Gene
The METTL3-METTL14 heterodimer forms a N6-methyltransferase complex that methylates adenosine residues of some mRNAs and regulates the circadian clock and differentiation of embryonic stem cells (PubMed:24316715, PubMed:24407421, PubMed:25719671, PubMed:27281194). In the heterodimer formed with METTL3, METTL14 probably constitutes the RNA-binding scaffold rather than the catalytic core (PubMed:27281194). N6-methyladenosine (m6A), which takes place at the 5-[AG]GAC-3 consensus sites of some mRNAs, plays a role in the efficiency of mRNA splicing, processing and mRNA stability (PubMed:24316715, PubMed:24407421, PubMed:25719671). M6A regulates the length of the circadian clock: acts as a early pace-setter in the circadian loop. M6A also acts as a regulator of mRNA stability: in embryonic stem cells (ESCs), m6A methylation of mRNAs encoding key naive pluripotency-promoting transcripts results in transcript destabilization (By similarity).
