GeneCards Summary for MYO16 Gene
MYO16 (Myosin XVI) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include actin filament binding and motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYO7A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYO16 Gene
Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Their highly divergent tails are presumed to bind to membranous compartments, which would be moved relative to actin filaments. May be involved in targeting of the catalytic subunit of protein phosphatase 1 during brain development. Activates PI3K and concomitantly recruits the WAVE1 complex to the close vicinity of PI3K and regulates neuronal morphogenesis (By similarity).
