N6-methyl adenosine (N6-methyl ATP) is a base modified analog of adenosine and is found as a minor nucleoside in natural RNAs (Meyer et al.). N6-methyl ATP can substitute for ATP in some biological systems, and is a potent agonist for P2Y-purinoceptors in the guinea pig, taenia coli (Burnstock et al.). In vitro studies showed that N6-methyl ATP substituted for ATP and supported cytoskeletal filament-driven translocation of motor proteins (dynein, kinesin and myosin) (Schliwa et al. & Shimizu et al.). N6-methyl ATP is also a substrate for RNA polymerase and can be used for preparation of modified RNA (Rohayem & Kariko et al.).
