Summaries for MYPN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYPN Gene

  • Striated muscle in vertebrates comprises large proteins which must be organized properly to contract efficiently. Z-lines in striated muscle are a sign of this organization, representing the ends of actin thin filaments, titin, nebulin or nebulette and accessory proteins required for structure and function. This gene encodes a protein which interacts with nebulin in skeletal muscle or nebulette in cardiac muscle and alpha-actinin. In addition, this gene product can interact with a protein with the I-band indicating it has a regulatory as well as structural function. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

  • Cardiomyopathy, dilated 1KK (CMD1KK) [MIM:615248]: A disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18006477, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22286171, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22892539}.

  • Cardiomyopathy, familial hypertrophic 22 (CMH22) [MIM:615248]: 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:22286171}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Cardiomyopathy, familial restrictive 4 (RCM4) [MIM:615248]: A heart disorder characterized by impaired filling of the ventricles with reduced diastolic volume, in the presence of normal or near normal wall thickness and systolic function. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22286171}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
