Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have ATP binding activity; nucleoside-triphosphatase activity; and protein dimerization activity. Involved in cardiac muscle hypertrophy in response to stress and transition between fast and slow fiber. Localizes to the Z disc; myosin complex; and stress fiber. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiomyopathy (multiple); congenital heart disease (multiple); and distal myopathy 1. Orthologous to human MYH7 (myosin heavy chain 7).
