GeneCards Summary for MYLK4 Gene
MYLK4 (Myosin Light Chain Kinase Family Member 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYLK4 include Deafness, Autosomal Recessive 14 and Cardiomyopathy, Familial Restrictive, 2. Among its related pathways are Focal Adhesion and Apelin signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYLK3.
Myosin Light Chain Kinases (MLCKs) are a group of protein serine/threonine kinases that are currently divided into two subtypes. MLCK1 is found in smooth muscle and phosphorylates myosin II regulatory light chains at Ser19. MLCK2 is located in the striated muscle.
