Gene: Mylk (myosin light chain kinase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mylk
Name: myosin light chain kinase
Description: Predicted to have enzyme binding activity and myosin light chain kinase activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including aorta smooth muscle tissue morphogenesis, bleb assembly, and cellular response to metal ion; predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the cell-cell junction, cleavage furrow, and cytoplasm; orthologous to human MYLK (myosin light chain kinase); PARTICIPATES IN acebutolol pharmacodynamics pathway; adrenergic beta receptor agonist and beta-blocker pharmacodynamics pathway; amiodarone pharmacodynamics pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-10-[(DIMETHYLAMINO)METHYL]-4-ETHYL-4,9-DIHYDROXY-1H-PYRANO[3',4':6,7]INOLIZINO[1,2-B]-QUINOLINE-3,14(4H,12H)-DIONE; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1,3-dinitrobenzene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: LOC288057; myosin light chain kinase, smooth muscle; myosin, light polypeptide kinase
