Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MYF6 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a probable basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) DNA binding protein involved in muscle differentiation. The encoded protein likely acts as a heterodimer with another bHLH protein. Defects in this gene are a cause of autosomal dominant centronuclear myopathy (ADCNM). [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for MYF6 Gene
MYF6 (Myogenic Factor 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYF6 include Myopathy, Centronuclear, 1 and Centronuclear Myopathy. Among its related pathways are Immune response Function of MEF2 in T lymphocytes and Myogenesis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA-binding transcription factor activity and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is MYF5.
