GeneCards Summary for MYL7 Gene
MYL7 (Myosin Light Chain 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYL7 include Fechtner Syndrome and Familial Atrial Fibrillation. Among its related pathways are Smooth Muscle Contraction and Focal Adhesion. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYL5.
Myosins are a large family of motor proteins that share the common features of ATP hydrolysis (ATPase enzyme activity), actin binding and potential for kinetic energy transduction. Originally isolated from muscle cells, almost all eukaryotic cells are known to contain myosins.
