Function and detection of 5-methylcytosine in eukaryotic RNA

Squires, Jeffrey; Preiss, Thomas


Modified nucleosides play an important role in RNA function and have been identified in multiple RNA types, including tRNAs, rRNAs, mRNAs and small regulatory RNAs. Among these, 5-methylcytosine (m5C) has been detected in rRNAs and tRNAs, and early reports suggested its presence in mRNAs. Known and well studied as an epigenetic mark in DNA, the prevalence and function of m5C in RNA is either incompletely explored (i.e., in tRNA and rRNA) or virtually unknown (i.e., in mRNA and other noncoding...[Show more]
