Gene: Myh8 (myosin heavy chain 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Myh8
Name: myosin heavy chain 8
Description: Predicted to have ATP binding activity; ATPase activity; and microfilament motor activity. Predicted to be involved in ATP metabolic process; muscle filament sliding; and skeletal muscle contraction. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm and myosin complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in disease of cellular proliferation and distal arthrogryposis type 7. Orthologous to human MYH8 (myosin heavy chain 8); PARTICIPATES IN myocarditis pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: myHC-perinatal; myosin heavy chain, skeletal muscle, perinatal; myosin, heavy chain 8, skeletal muscle, perinatal; myosin, heavy polypeptide 8, skeletal muscle, perinatal; myosin-8
