Gene: Myl3 (myosin light chain 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Myl3
Name: myosin light chain 3
Description: Exhibits motor activity. Involved in cardiac muscle contraction and skeletal muscle tissue development. Localizes to the myosin complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 8. Orthologous to human MYL3 (myosin light chain 3); PARTICIPATES IN prostaglandin I2 signaling pathway; dilated cardiomyopathy pathway; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy pathway; INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
