Methyltransferase-like 3 (METTL3) and methyltransferase-like 14 (METTL14) form a stable heterodimer core complex that catalyzes N6-methyladenosine (m6A) RNA methylation in mammalian cells. m6A is an abundant internal modification in messenger RNA and long non-coding RNA. It functions in multiple aspects of developmental regulation, cell cycle progression, cell fate, and the heat shock stress response by affecting aspects of RNA metabolism such as pre-mRNA processing, translation efficiency, transcript stability and miRNA biogenesis.
