The protein encoded by this gene is a probable basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) DNA binding protein involved in muscle differentiation. The encoded protein likely acts as a heterodimer with another bHLH protein. Defects in this gene are a cause of autosomal dominant centronuclear myopathy (ADCNM). [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for MYF6 Gene
MYF6 (Myogenic Factor 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYF6 include myopathy, centronuclear, 3 and myopathy, centronuclear. Among its related pathways are Developmental Biology and CDO in myogenesis. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYOD1.
