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 Presynaptic Congenital Myasthenic Syndromes and Deafness, Autosomal Recessive 48. 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 MYO9B.

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).
