Summaries for MYBPC3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYBPC3 Gene

  • MYBPC3 encodes the cardiac isoform of myosin-binding protein C. Myosin-binding protein C is a myosin-associated protein found in the cross-bridge-bearing zone (C region) of A bands in striated muscle. MYBPC3, the cardiac isoform, is expressed exclussively in heart muscle. Regulatory phosphorylation of the cardiac isoform in vivo by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) upon adrenergic stimulation may be linked to modulation of cardiac contraction. Mutations in MYBPC3 are one cause of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MYBPC3 Gene

MYBPC3 (Myosin Binding Protein C, Cardiac) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYBPC3 include cardiomyopathy, familial hypertrophic, 4 and left ventricular noncompaction 10. Among its related pathways are Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and structural constituent of muscle. An important paralog of this gene is MYBPC2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYBPC3 Gene

  • Thick filament-associated protein located in the crossbridge region of vertebrate striated muscle a bands. In vitro it binds MHC, F-actin and native thin filaments, and modifies the activity of actin-activated myosin ATPase. It may modulate muscle contraction or may play a more structural role

  • Cardiomyopathy, familial hypertrophic 4 (CMH4) [MIM:115197]: A hereditary heart disorder characterized by ventricular hypertrophy, which is usually asymmetric and often involves the interventricular septum. The symptoms include dyspnea, syncope, collapse, palpitations, and chest pain. They can be readily provoked by exercise. The disorder has inter- and intrafamilial variability ranging from benign to malignant forms with high risk of cardiac failure and sudden cardiac death. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11499718, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11499719, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11815426, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12379228, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12628722, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12707239, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12818575, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12951062, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12974739, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14563344, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15114369, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15519027, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15563892, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16199542, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18403758, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18957093, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23840593, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7744002, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9048664, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9541104, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9541115, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9562578}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Cardiomyopathy, dilated 1MM (CMD1MM) [MIM:615396]: A disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20215591}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Left ventricular non-compaction 10 (LVNC10) [MIM:615396]: A disease due to an arrest of myocardial morphogenesis. It is characterized by a hypertrophic left ventricle with deep trabeculations and with poor systolic function, with or without associated left ventricular dilation. In some cases, it is associated with other congenital heart anomalies. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21551322}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
