Among its related pathways are Sertoli-Sertoli Cell Junction Dynamics and Translocation of GLUT4 to the plasma membrane. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include actin binding and motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYH1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for MYH13 Gene
Fast twitching myosin mediating the high-velocity and low-tension contractions of specific striated muscles.
Myosins are a large family of motor proteins that share the common features of ATP hydrolysis (ATPase enzyme activity), actin binding and potential for kinetic energy transduction. Originally isolated from muscle cells, almost all eukaryotic cells are known to contain myosins.
