Gene: MYLK (myosin light chain kinase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MYLK
Name: myosin light chain kinase
Description: Exhibits myosin light chain kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including aorta smooth muscle tissue morphogenesis; bleb assembly; and cellular hypotonic response. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cleavage furrow; lamellipodium; and stress fiber. Implicated in adult respiratory distress syndrome; asthma; and thoracic aortic aneurysm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
