Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have actin monomer binding activity and 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 localize to the A band; I band; and myosin complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 8. Is expressed in several structures, including diaphragm; heart; limb segment; skeletal musculature; and tail mesenchyme. Orthologous to human MYL3 (myosin light chain 3).
