Gene: Mettl8 (methyltransferase like 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mettl8
Name: methyltransferase like 8
RGD ID: 1561059
Description: Predicted to have histone acetyltransferase activity and mRNA methyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including fat cell differentiation; mRNA methylation; and skeletal muscle tissue development. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm and nucleus. Orthologous to human METTL8 (methyltransferase like 8); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; copper atom; copper(0).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC502633; methyltransferase-like protein 8; RGD1561059; similar to BC004636 protein
