DESCRIPTION
Also known as YTHD2_BOVIN, YTHDF2. Specifically recognizes and binds N6-methyladenosine (m6A)-containing RNAs, and regulates mRNA stability. M6A is a modification present at internal sites of mRNAs and some non-coding RNAs and plays a role in mRNA stability and processing. Acts as a regulator of mRNA stability: binding to m6A-containing mRNAs results in mRNA degradation. Required maternally to regulate oocyte maturation: probably acts by binding to m6A-containing mRNAs, thereby regulating maternal transcript dosage during oocyte maturation, which is essential for the competence of oocytes to sustain early zygotic development. Also involved in hematopoietic stem cells specification by binding to m6A-containing mRNAs, leading to decrease Notch signaling and promote endothelial to hematopoietic transition (By similarity). Also acts as a promoter of cap-independent mRNA translation following heat shock stress: upon stress, relocalizes to the nucleus and specifically binds mRNAs with some m6A methylation mark at their 5'-UTR, protecting demethylation of mRNAs by FTO, thereby promoting cap-independent mRNA translation. Interacts with YTHDF3.
