Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits microfilament motor activity. Involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; regulation of heart contraction; and striated muscle cell development. Localizes to the Z disc; myosin complex; and stress fiber. Used to study dilated cardiomyopathy; dilated cardiomyopathy 1EE; and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 14. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atrial heart septal defect (multiple); heart conduction disease (multiple); and intrinsic cardiomyopathy (multiple). Orthologous to human MYH6 (myosin heavy chain 6).
