NameColorectal cancer (A:m6A)
DescriptionThe overexpressed YTHDF1, associated to DNA copy number gain, recognizes and promotes the translation of m6A-modified FZD9 and Wnt6 mRNAs, leading to an aberrant activation of Wnt/b-catenin signaling and ultimately affecting the tumorigenicity and stem cell-like activity in CRC. Epigenetic regulation by YTHDF1 plays an important role in cancer progression processes in CRC. In another study, it was demonstrated that YTHDF1 overexpression is promoted by c-Myc and is associated to CRC cells proliferation and chemoresistence.
