Gene: Myh2 (myosin, heavy polypeptide 2, skeletal muscle, adult) Mus musculus
Symbol: Myh2
Name: myosin, heavy polypeptide 2, skeletal muscle, adult
Description: Involved in actin-mediated cell contraction; plasma membrane repair; and response to activity. Localizes to several cellular components, including A band; Golgi apparatus; and actomyosin contractile ring. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; forelimb bud mesenchyme; and skeletal musculature. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in inclusion body myositis. Orthologous to human MYH2 (myosin heavy chain 2); PARTICIPATES IN myocarditis pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17beta-estradiol; 17beta-hydroxy-5alpha-androstan-3-one.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
