Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable actin monomer binding activity and cytoskeletal motor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cardiac muscle contraction; regulation of the force of heart contraction; and ventricular cardiac muscle tissue morphogenesis. Predicted to be located in I band. Predicted to be part of myosin II complex. Predicted to be active in A band. Is expressed in several structures, including diaphragm; eye; heart; limb segment; and skeletal musculature. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 8. Orthologous to human MYL3 (myosin light chain 3).
