|Function||Specifically recognizes and binds N6-methyladenosine (m6A)-containing RNAs, and regulates mRNA stability (PubMed:24284625, PubMed:26046440, PubMed:26318451). M6A is a modification present at internal sites of mRNAs and some non- coding RNAs and plays a role in the efficiency of mRNA splicing, processing and stability (PubMed:22575960, PubMed:24284625, PubMed:25412658, PubMed:25412661). Acts as a regulator of mRNA stability: binding to m6A-containing mRNAs results in the localization to mRNA decay sites, such as processing bodies (P- bodies), leading to mRNA degradation (PubMed:24284625, PubMed:26046440). Also acts as a promoter of cap-independent mRNA translation following heat shock stress: upon stress, relocalizes to the nucleus and specifically binds mRNAs with some m6A methylation mark at their 5'-UTR, protecting demethylation of mRNAs by FTO, thereby promoting cap-independent mRNA translation (PubMed:26458103).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol. Nucleus. Cytoplasm, P-body. Note=Localizes to the cytosol and relocates to the nucleus following heat shock stress (PubMed:26458103).|

YTHDF2 is a member of the YTH (YT521-B homology)superfamily containing YTH domain. The YTH domain is typical forthe eukaryotes and is particularly abundant in plants. The YTHdomain is usually located in the middle of the protein sequence andmay function in binding to RNA. In addition to a YTH domain, thisprotein has a proline rich region which may be involved in signaltransduction. An Alu-rich domain has been identified in one of theintrons of this gene, which is thought to be associated with humanlongevity. In addition, reciprocal translocations between this geneand the Runx1 (AML1) gene on chromosme 21 has been observed inpatients with acute myeloid leukemia. This gene was initiallymapped to chromosome 14, which was later turned out to be apseudogene.
