N6-methyltransferase that methylates adenosine residues of some mRNAs. N6-methyladenosine (m6A), which is present at internal sites of some mRNAs, may play a role in the efficiency of mRNA splicing, transport or translation.
Widely expressed at low level. Expressed in spleen, thymus, prostate, testis, ovary, small intestine, colon and peripheral blood leukocytes.
Belongs to the MT-A70-like family.
Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
Nucleus speckle. Colocalizes with speckles in interphase nuclei. Suggesting that it may be associated with nuclear pre-mRNA splicing components.
