Modomics - A Database of RNA Modifications


NameColorectal cancer (A:m6A)
DescriptionMETTL3 is upregulated in colorectal cancer. METTL3 can methylate pri-miR-1246, which further promotes the maturation of pri-miR-1246. The anti-oncogene SPRED2 was identified as the downstream target of miR-1246, wherein downregulated SPRED2 further reverses the inhibition of the MAPK pathway. The METTL3/miR-1246/SPRED2 axis plays an important role in tumor metastasis and provides a new m6A modification pattern in CRC development.
