Gene: Myo5a (myosin VA) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Myo5a
Name: myosin VA
Description: Exhibits several functions, including ATP binding activity; ATP-dependent protein binding activity; and syntaxin-1 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cytoskeleton-dependent intracellular transport; positive regulation of protein localization to plasma membrane; and positive regulation of vascular associated smooth muscle cell migration. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; actin cytoskeleton; and cytoplasmic vesicle. Predicted to colocalize with several cellular components, including endosome; peroxisome; and polymeric cytoskeletal fiber. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Griscelli syndrome type 1. Orthologous to human MYO5A (myosin VA); PARTICIPATES IN insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: D; dilute myosin heavy chain, non-muscle; Dilute-opisthotonus; Dop; Myh12; myosin 5a; myosin-Va; unconventional myosin-Va
