Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have ATP binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and nucleoside-triphosphatase activity. Involved in cardiac muscle hypertrophy in response to stress and transition between fast and slow fiber. Localizes to Z disc; myosin complex; and stress fiber. Is expressed in several structures, including diaphragm; heart; skeletal musculature; somite; and telencephalon. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiomyopathy (multiple); congenital heart disease (multiple); distal myopathy 1; and hyaline body myopathy (multiple). Orthologous to human MYH7 (myosin heavy chain 7).
