External Ids for MYOZ3 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is specifically expressed in the skeletal muscle, and belongs to the myozenin family. Members of this family function as calcineurin-interacting proteins that help tether calcineurin to the sarcomere of cardiac and skeletal muscle. They play an important role in modulation of calcineurin signaling. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2012]

MYOZ3 (Myozenin 3) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is MYOZ1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYOZ3 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
