Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits actin filament binding activity. Involved in microvillus assembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including the basal plasma membrane; brush border; and lateral plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 48 and sensorineural hearing loss. Is expressed in several structures, including inner ear and intestine. Orthologous to human MYO1A (myosin IA).
