Abstract

Among a number of mRNA modifications, N6‑methyladenosine (m6A) modification is the most common type in eukaryotes and nuclear‑replicating viruses. m6A has a significant role in numerous cancer types, including leukemia, brain tumors, liver cancer, breast cancer and lung cancer. Although m6A methyltransferases are essential during RNA modifications, the biological functions of m6A and the underlying mechanisms remain to be fully elucidated, predominantly due to the limited detection methods for m6A. In the present review, the currently available m6A detection methods and the respective scope of their applications are presented to facilitate the further investigation of the roles of m6A in biological process.
