The article discusses research study on the development of the protein Arg N-methyltransferase 5 (PRMT5) which references the study "Prmt5 is essential for early mouse development and acts in the cytoplasm to maintain ES cell pluripotency," by W. W. Tee and colleagues in the 2010 issue of "Genes Development."

    Emerging data support that RNA methylation plays important roles in RNA processing and metabolism. The methyltransferases Mettl3 and Mettl14 are shown to catalyse N6-methyladenosine (m6A) RNA modification in embryonic stem cells (ESCs). This m6A modification controls RNA metabolism and functions...

    Mammalian development is associated with considerable changes in global DNA methylation levels at times of genomic reprogramming. Normal DNA methylation is essential for development but, despite considerable advances in our understanding of the DNA methyltransferases, the reason that development...

    Higher eukaryotes must adapt a totipotent genome to specialized cell types with stable but limited functions. One potential mechanism for lineage restriction is changes in chromatin, and differentiation-related chromatin changes have been observed for individual genes. We have taken a...
