MYO1G is a plasma membrane-associated class I myosin (see MIM 601478) that is abundant in T and B lymphocytes and mast cells (Pierce et al., 2001 [PubMed 11544309]; Patino-Lopez et al., 2010 [PubMed 20071333]).[supplied by OMIM, Jun 2010]
GeneCards Summary for MYO1G Gene
MYO1G (Myosin IG) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sertoli-Sertoli Cell Junction Dynamics and Actin Nucleation by ARP-WASP Complex. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYO1D.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYO1G Gene
Unconventional myosin required during immune response for detection of rare antigen-presenting cells by regulating T-cell migration. Unconventional myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity and serve in intracellular movements. Acts as a regulator of T-cell migration by generating membrane tension, enforcing cell-intrinsic meandering search, thereby enhancing detection of rare antigens during lymph-node surveillance, enabling pathogen eradication. Also required in B-cells, where it regulates different membrane/cytoskeleton-dependent processes. Involved in Fc-gamma receptor (Fc-gamma-R) phagocytosis.
Minor histocompatibility antigen HA-2: Constitutes the minor histocompatibility antigen HA-2. More generally, minor histocompatibility antigens (mHags) refer to immunogenic peptide which, when complexed with MHC, can generate an immune response after recognition by specific T-cells. The peptides are derived from polymorphic intracellular proteins, which are cleaved by normal pathways of antigen processing. The binding of these peptides to MHC class I or class II molecules and their expression on the cell surface can stimulate T-cell responses and thereby trigger graft rejection or graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from HLA-identical sibling donor. GVHD is a frequent complication after bone marrow transplantation (BMT), due to mismatch of minor histocompatibility antigen in HLA-matched sibling marrow transplants. HA-2 is restricted to MHC class I HLA-A*0201.
