Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have ATPase activity; actin filament binding activity; and microfilament motor activity. Predicted to be involved in ATP metabolic process and skeletal muscle contraction. Localizes to contractile fiber and myosin complex. Is expressed in several structures, including heart; limb; paraxial mesenchyme; skeletal musculature; and trunk. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in distal arthrogryposis type 2A; distal arthrogryposis type 2B1; and distal arthrogryposis type 2B3. Orthologous to human MYH3 (myosin heavy chain 3).
