Summaries for MYLK3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYLK3 Gene

  • Phosphorylation of cardiac myosin heavy chains (see MYH7B, MIM 609928) and light chains (see MYL2, MIM 160781) by a kinase, such as MYLK3, potentiates the force and rate of cross-bridge recruitment in cardiac myocytes (Chan et al., 2008 [PubMed 18202317]).[supplied by OMIM, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MYLK3 Gene

MYLK3 (Myosin Light Chain Kinase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Immune response CCR3 signaling in eosinophils and Vascular smooth muscle contraction. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYLK2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYLK3 Gene

  • Kinase that phosphorylates MYL2 in vitro. Promotes sarcomere formation in cardiomyocytes and increases cardiomyocyte contractility (By similarity).

Tocris Summary for MYLK3 Gene

  • Myosin Light Chain Kinases (MLCKs) are a group of protein serine/threonine kinases that are currently divided into two subtypes. MLCK1 is found in smooth muscle and phosphorylates myosin II regulatory light chains at Ser19. MLCK2 is located in the striated muscle.
