Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
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 A band; I band; and myosin complex. Is expressed in several structures, including diaphragm; heart; limb segment; skeletal musculature; and tail mesenchyme. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 8. Orthologous to human MYL3 (myosin light chain 3).
