Summaries for MYO3A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYO3A Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the myosin superfamily. Myosins are actin-dependent motor proteins and are categorized into conventional myosins (class II) and unconventional myosins (classes I and III through XV) based on their variable C-terminal cargo-binding domains. Class III myosins, such as this one, have a kinase domain N-terminal to the conserved N-terminal motor domains and are expressed in photoreceptors. The protein encoded by this gene plays an important role in hearing in humans. Three different recessive, loss of function mutations in the encoded protein have been shown to cause nonsyndromic progressive hearing loss. Expression of this gene is highly restricted, with the strongest expression in retina and cochlea. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MYO3A Gene

MYO3A (Myosin IIIA) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYO3A include Deafness, Autosomal Recessive 30 and Dfnb30 Nonsyndromic Hearing Loss And Deafness.
