Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits actin filament binding activity; microfilament motor activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including inner ear morphogenesis; positive regulation of filopodium assembly; and protein phosphorylation. Localizes to filopodium tip; photoreceptor inner segment; and stereocilium tip. Is expressed in cochlea. Used to study autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 30. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 30. Orthologous to human MYO3A (myosin IIIA).
