Among its related pathways are FGFR1 mutant receptor activation and Infectious disease. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and actin filament binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYO18B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYO18A Gene
May link Golgi membranes to the cytoskeleton and participate in the tensile force required for vesicle budding from the Golgi. Thereby, may play a role in Golgi membrane trafficking and could indirectly give its flattened shape to the Golgi apparatus. Alternatively, in concert with LURAP1 and CDC42BPA/CDC42BPB, has been involved in modulating lamellar actomyosin retrograde flow that is crucial to cell protrusion and migration. May be involved in the maintenance of the stromal cell architectures required for cell to cell contact.
