External Ids 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.

GeneCards Summary for YTHDF3 Gene
YTHDF3 (YTH N(6)-Methyladenosine RNA Binding Protein 3) is a Protein Coding gene. 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.
