Chemical/ Small Molecule corresponding to N6-methyladenosine (m6A) conjugated to keyhole limpet haemocyanin.
- ab190886 was tested on a oligonucleotide array against RNA oligomers; N6-methyladenosine (m6A) and unmodified adenosine. 2Ome-RNA oligomers carry a methyl group at the 2’-OH residue of the ribose molecule, making them resistant to most ribonucleases.
N6-methyladenosine (m6A) is a post-transcriptional modification of RNA. m6A modification has been identified in all classes of RNA (rRNA, tRNA and mRNA) and is catalysed by an evolutionary conserved multi-subunit enzyme, methyltransferase like 3 (METTL3). Cellular and viral RNA has been known to be methylated for decades. Recent studies have found that mRNA is predominately m6A modified at stop codons and long internal exons, which are conserved between mouse and human. Emerging evidence suggests m6A plays an important role in regulating gene expression, alternative splicing patterns, downstream signalling (p53) as well as apoptosis.
The regulation of m6A modifications in mRNA has been linked to disease, where fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) has been has been reported to be a obesity risk gene. FTO is a m6A demethylase and polymorphisms that result in increased FTO expression are associated with increased body mass and risk of obesity.

RelevanceN6-Methyladenosine (m6A) is an abundant modification found in mRNA, tRNA, snRNA, as well as long non-coding RNA, in all species. RNA adenosine methylation is catalyzed by a multicomponent complex composed of METTL3/MT-A70, METTL14, and WTAP in mammals. METTL3 & METTL14 are responsible for the methyltransferase activity of the complex, and WTAP mediates substrate recruitment.

All batches of ab190886 are tested in Nucleotide Array against N6-methyladenosine and unmodified adenosine. Six dilutions of each oligomer are printed on to the Array in triplicate and results are averaged before being plotted on to a graph. Results show strong binding to N6-methyladenosine, indicating that this antibody specifically recognises adenosine methylated at position N6.
