WTAP Function in Sertoli Cells Is Essential for Sustaining the Spermatogonial Stem Cell Niche

We firstly examined the expression of m6A methyltransferases WTAP, METTL3, and METTL14 in mouse testis. Immunofluorescent staining revealed that METTL3 or METTL14 was co-localized with WTAP in germ cells and Sertoli c...
