|Function||Dioxygenase that demethylates RNA by oxidative demethylation: specifically demethylates N(6)-methyladenosine (m6A) RNA, the most prevalent internal modification of messenger RNA (mRNA) in higher eukaryotes (PubMed:23177736, PubMed:24778178, PubMed:24616105, PubMed:24489119). Can also demethylate N(6)- methyladenosine in single-stranded DNA (in vitro) (PubMed:24616105). Requires molecular oxygen, alpha-ketoglutarate and iron (PubMed:21264265, PubMed:23177736, PubMed:24778178, PubMed:24616105, PubMed:24489119). Demethylation of m6A mRNA affects mRNA processing and export (PubMed:23177736). Required for spermatogenesis (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus speckle|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed, with highest expression in lung, followed by testis, pancreas, spleen and ovary|
