Summaries for MYBPC2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYBPC2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the myosin-binding protein C family. This family includes the fast-, slow- and cardiac-type isoforms, each of which is a myosin-associated protein found in the cross-bridge-bearing zone (C region) of A bands in striated muscle. The protein encoded by this locus is referred to as the fast-type isoform. Mutations in the related but distinct genes encoding the slow-type and cardiac-type isoforms have been associated with distal arthrogryposis, type 1 and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, respectively.

GeneCards Summary for MYBPC2 Gene

MYBPC2 (Myosin Binding Protein C, Fast Type) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYBPC2 include Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and Cardiomyopathy, Familial Hypertrophic, 4. Among its related pathways are Cardiac conduction and Striated Muscle Contraction. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include actin binding and structural constituent of muscle. An important paralog of this gene is MYBPC3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYBPC2 Gene

  • Thick filament-associated protein located in the crossbridge region of vertebrate striated muscle a bands. In vitro it binds MHC, F-actin and native thin filaments, and modifies the activity of actin-activated myosin ATPase. It may modulate muscle contraction or may play a more structural role.
