NameMelanoma (A:m6A)
DescriptionIncreased m6A methylation level (due to METTL3 upregulation) promotes melanoma cell lines colony formation and invasion. MMP2 and N-cadherin play a crucial role in invasion and metastasis of melanoma cells and their expression was found to be associated to METTL3 upregulation. These results indicate that METTL3 may regulate MMP2 and N-cadherin. Whereas MMP2 expression depends on the catalytic activity of METTL3, regulation of N-cadherin appears to be independent of METTL3 catalytic activity.
