Cornell Team Finds Widespread Adenosine Methylation in Mammalian Transcripts | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An epigenetic modification that involves the methylation of adenosine in RNA is more common in mammalian cells than previously appreciated, according to a study online today in Cell.

A Cornell University team used immunoblotting, along with an antibody-based enrichment and sequencing method dubbed MeRIP-Seq, to look at N6-methyladenosine profiles in messenger RNA and non-coding RNAs from several mammalian tissues and cell lines.
