Entrez Gene Summary for MYO1A Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the myosin superfamily. The protein represents an unconventional myosin; it should not be confused with the conventional skeletal muscle myosin-1 (MYH1). Unconventional myosins contain the basic domains characteristic of conventional myosins and are further distinguished from class members by their tail domains. They function as actin-based molecular motors. Mutations in this gene have been associated with autosomal dominant deafness. Alternatively spliced variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for MYO1A Gene

MYO1A (Myosin IA) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYO1A include deafness, autosomal dominant 48 and dfna48 nonsyndromic hearing loss and deafness. Among its related pathways are RhoGDI Pathway and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYO1D.
