Summaries for MYO18B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYO18B Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene may regulate muscle-specific genes when in the nucleus and may influence intracellular trafficking when in the cytoplasm. The encoded protein functions as a homodimer and may interact with F actin. Mutations in this gene are associated with lung cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MYO18B Gene

MYO18B (Myosin XVIIIB) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYO18B include Klippel-Feil Syndrome 4, Autosomal Recessive, With Myopathy And Facial Dysmorphism and Lung Large Cell Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and PAK Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYO18A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYO18B Gene

  • May be involved in intracellular trafficking of the muscle cell when in the cytoplasm, whereas entering the nucleus, may be involved in the regulation of muscle specific genes. May play a role in the control of tumor development and progression; restored MYO18B expression in lung cancer cells suppresses anchorage-independent growth.

It is due to a failure in the normal segmentation of vertebrae during the early weeks of fetal development. The clinical triad consists of short neck, low posterior hairline, and limited neck movement. KFS4 features additionally include myopathy, mild short stature, microcephaly, and distinctive facies. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25748484}.
