NameHepatocellular carcinoma (A:m6A)
Descriptionm6A methylation level decreases the expression of tumor suppressor genes like SOCS2. The upregulation of METTL3 in HCC mediates this event through an m6A-YTHDF2-dependent mechanism and increases cancer cells proliferation, migration and metastasis formation
Related RNA reactionA:m6A
Found in RNAmRNA
Modified TranscriptSOCS2
Mapping TechnologyMeRIP-seq
Quantification techniquesMeRIP-qPCR
