Summaries for MYH14 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYH14 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the myosin superfamily. The protein represents a conventional non-muscle myosin; it should not be confused with the unconventional myosin-14 (MYO14). Myosins are actin-dependent motor proteins with diverse functions including regulation of cytokinesis, cell motility, and cell polarity. Mutations in this gene result in one form of autosomal dominant hearing impairment. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for MYH14 Gene

MYH14 (Myosin, Heavy Chain 14, Non-Muscle) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYH14 include deafness, autosomal dominant 4a and peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, hoarseness, and hearing loss. Among its related pathways are RhoGDI Pathway and Regulation of actin cytoskeleton. GO annotations related to this gene include calmodulin binding and microfilament motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYH4.

  • Cellular myosin that appears to play a role in cytokinesis, cell shape, and specialized functions such as secretion and capping.

Tocris Summary for MYH14 Gene

  • Myosins are a large family of motor proteins that share the common features of ATP hydrolysis, actin binding and potential for kinetic energy transduction. Originally isolated from muscle cells (hence the name), almost all eukaryotic cells are now known to contain myosins. Structurally, mysoins contain a head domain that binds to actin filaments (microfilaments) and is the site of ATP hydrolysis. The tail domain interacts with cargo molecules, and the neck acts as a linker between the head and tail and is the site of regulatory myosin light chain binding. There are 17 myosin families and the most well characterized is myosin II. Myosin II is found predominantly in myocytes and mediates plus-ended movement along microfilaments. It is involved in muscle contraction through cyclic interactions with actin-rich thin filaments, creating a contractile force. It is regulated by phosphorylation via myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) and by intracellular Ca2+ concentrations.

  • Deafness, autosomal dominant, 4A (DFNA4A) [MIM:600652]: A form of non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15015131, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16222661}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, hoarseness, and hearing loss (PNMHH) [MIM:614369]: A complex phenotype of progressive peripheral neuropathy and distal myopathy, with later onset of hoarseness and hearing loss. Affected individuals develop distal muscle weakness at a mean age of 10.6 years, followed by progressive atrophy of these muscles. The lower limbs are more severely affected than the upper limbs, and the muscle weakness first affects anterior leg muscles and later posterior leg muscles. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21480433}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
