Summaries for MYO9A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYO9A Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the myosin superfamily. The protein represents an unconventional myosin; it should not be confused with the conventional non-muscle myosin-9 (MYH9). Unconventional myosins contain the basic domains 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 Bardet-Biedl Syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for MYO9A Gene

MYO9A (Myosin IXA) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYO9A include bardet-biedl syndrome. Among its related pathways are RhoGDI Pathway and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYO7A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYO9A Gene

  • Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Regulates Rho activity in neurons, has a role in the regulation of neuronal morphology and function (By similarity).
