Gene: MYH6 (myosin heavy chain 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MYH6
Name: myosin heavy chain 6
Description: Exhibits actin-dependent ATPase activity; microfilament motor activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including heart development; muscle filament sliding; and regulation of heart contraction. Predicted to localize to the myofibril. Implicated in atrial heart septal defect (multiple); heart conduction disease (multiple); and intrinsic cardiomyopathy (multiple). Biomarker of congestive heart failure.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
