Summaries for YTHDF3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for YTHDF3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the YTH (YT521-B homology) domain protein family. The YTH domain is common in eukaryotes, is often found in the middle of the protein sequence, and may function in binding to RNA. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2013]

GeneCards Summary for YTHDF3 Gene

YTHDF3 (YTH N6-Methyladenosine RNA Binding Protein 3) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and N6-methyladenosine-containing RNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is YTHDF1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for YTHDF3 Gene

  • Specifically recognizes and binds N6-methyladenosine (m6A)-containing RNAs. M6A is a modification present at internal sites of mRNAs and some non-coding RNAs and plays a role in the efficiency of mRNA splicing, processing and stability.
