Gene: Mettl8 (methyltransferase like 8) Mus musculus
Symbol: Mettl8
Name: methyltransferase like 8
Description: Exhibits histone acetyltransferase activity and mRNA methyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including fat cell differentiation; mRNA methylation; and skeletal muscle tissue development. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including body cavity or lining; genitourinary system; integumental system; respiratory system; and vertebral axis musculature. Orthologous to human METTL8 (methyltransferase like 8).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
