Gene: MYH9 (myosin heavy chain 9) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MYH9
Name: myosin heavy chain 9
CRRD ID: 732401
Description: Exhibits several functions, including adenyl ribonucleotide binding activity; nucleoside-triphosphatase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including actin cytoskeleton organization; myeloid cell differentiation; and negative regulation of actin filament severing. Localizes to several cellular components, including actin cytoskeleton; myosin II filament; and ruffle. Colocalizes with COP9 signalosome and immunological synapse. Implicated in several diseases, including auditory system disease (multiple); autosomal dominant Alport syndrome; blood platelet disease (multiple); end stage renal disease; and proteinuria. Biomarker of MYH-9 related disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
