An important regulatory mechanism affecting mRNA translation involves various covalent modifications of RNA, which establish distinct epitranscriptomic signatures that actively influence various physiological processes. Dendritic translation in mammalian neurons is a potent target for RNA modification-based regulation. In this mini-review, we focus on the effect of potential RNA modifications on the spatiotemporal regulation of the dendritic translation of mRNAs, which are targeted by two important neuronal translational co-regulators, namely TDP-43 and Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein (FMRP).
