Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits ATP binding activity; actin filament binding activity; and nucleoside-triphosphatase activity. Involved in actin filament-based movement. Localizes to several cellular components, including actin cytoskeleton; brush border; and growth cone. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; respiratory system; sensory organ; and vibrissa. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 4A and sensorineural hearing loss. Orthologous to human MYH14 (myosin heavy chain 14).
