Gene: Myh6 (myosin heavy chain 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Myh6
Name: myosin heavy chain 6
Description: Exhibits ATP binding activity, nucleoside-triphosphatase activity, and protein dimerization activity; involved in several processes, including aging, cellular response to 3,3',5-triiodo-L-thyronine, and muscle contraction; localizes to the mitochondrion, muscle myosin complex, and myofibril; biomarker of congestive heart failure, hypothyroidism, and myocardial infarction; orthologous to human MYH6 (myosin heavy chain 6); PARTICIPATES IN dilated cardiomyopathy pathway; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy pathway; myocarditis pathway; INTERACTS WITH (R)-noradrenaline; (RS)-amphetamine; 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
