Summaries for MYOZ2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYOZ2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to a family of sarcomeric proteins that bind to calcineurin, a phosphatase involved in calcium-dependent signal transduction in diverse cell types. These family members tether calcineurin to alpha-actinin at the z-line of the sarcomere of cardiac and skeletal muscle cells, and thus they are important for calcineurin signaling. Mutations in this gene cause cardiomyopathy familial hypertrophic type 16, a hereditary heart disorder. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

GeneCards Summary for MYOZ2 Gene

MYOZ2 (Myozenin 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYOZ2 include Cardiomyopathy, Hypertrophic, 16 and Myoz2-Related Familial Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and telethonin binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYOZ3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYOZ2 Gene

  • Myozenins may serve as intracellular binding proteins involved in linking Z line proteins such as alpha-actinin, gamma-filamin, TCAP/telethonin, LDB3/ZASP and localizing calcineurin signaling to the sarcomere. Plays an important role in the modulation of calcineurin signaling. May play a role in myofibrillogenesis.

  • Cardiomyopathy, familial hypertrophic 16 (CMH16) [MIM:613838]: A hereditary heart disorder characterized by ventricular hypertrophy, which is usually asymmetric and often involves the interventricular septum. The symptoms include dyspnea, syncope, collapse, palpitations, and chest pain. They can be readily provoked by exercise. The disorder has inter- and intrafamilial variability ranging from benign to malignant forms with high risk of cardiac failure and sudden cardiac death. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17347475}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
