Fat mass and obesity-associated protein also known as alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase FTO is an RNA demethylase that mediates oxidative demethylation of different RNA species, such as mRNAs, tRNAs and snRNAs. It has been shown to act as a regulator of fat mass, adipogenesis and energy homeostasis.  FTO specifically demethylates N6-methyladenosine (m6A) RNA, the most prevalent internal modification of messenger RNA (mRNA) in higher eukaryotes.
