MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: This locus encodes a member of the methyltransferase family, and is involved in chromatin remodeling. Transcripts from this locus can be induced or inhibited by cell stretch and affect cell differentiation in the myogenic or adipogenic pathways. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. Additional splice variants have been described in the literature but they meet nonsense-mediated decay (NMD) criteria and are likely to be degraded as soon as they are transcribed.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit reduced 3-methylcytidine (m3C) methyltransferases modification of mRNA. [provided by MGI curators]
