A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.11.53

Accepted Name
mRNA N(6)-methyladenine demethylase.
Reaction catalysed
N(6)-methyladenosine in mRNA + 2-oxoglutarate + O(2) <=> adenosine in mRNA + formaldehyde + succinate + CO(2)
Cofactor(s)
Fe(3+).
Comment(s)
  • Catalyzes oxidative demethylation of mRNA N(6)-methyladenine.
  • The FTO enzyme from human can also demethylate N(3)-methylthymine from single stranded DNA and N(3)-methyluridine from single stranded RNA with low activity.
