Entrez Gene Summary for MYO6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a reverse-direction motor protein that moves toward the minus end of actin filaments and plays a role in intracellular vesicle and organelle transport. The protein consists of a motor domain containing an ATP- and an actin-binding site and a globular tail which interacts with other proteins. This protein maintains the structural integrity of inner ear hair cells and mutations in this gene cause non-syndromic autosomal dominant and recessive hearing loss. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for MYO6 Gene

  • Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity (By similarity). Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements (By similarity). Myosin 6 is a reverse-direction motor protein that moves towards the minus-end of actin filaments (PubMed:10519557). Has slow rate of actin-activated ADP release due to weak ATP binding (By similarity). Functions in a variety of intracellular processes such as vesicular membrane trafficking and cell migration (By similarity). Required for the structural integrity of the Golgi apparatus via the p53-dependent pro-survival pathway (PubMed:16507995). Appears to be involved in a very early step of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in polarized epithelial cells (PubMed:11447109). May act as a regulator of F-actin dynamics (By similarity). As part of the DISP complex, may regulate the association of septins with actin and thereby regulate the actin cytoskeleton (PubMed:29467281). May play a role in transporting DAB2 from the plasma membrane to specific cellular targets (By similarity). May play a role in the extension and network organization of neurites (By similarity). Required for structural integrity of inner ear hair cells (By similarity). Modulates RNA polymerase II-dependent transcription (PubMed:16949370).

    Molecular mass:
    149691 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer; dimerization seems to implicate the unfolding of the three-helix bundle region creating an additional calmodulin binding site, and cargo binding (By similarity). Able to function as a monomer under specific conditions in vitro (PubMed:15044955). Forms a complex with CFTR and DAB2 in the apical membrane of epithelial cells (PubMed:15247260). Component of the DISP/DOCK7-induced septin displacement complex, at least composed of DOCK7, LRCH3 and MYO6 (PubMed:29467281). Binding to calmodulin through a unique insert, not found in other myosins, located in the neck region between the motor domain and the IQ domain appears to contribute to the directionality reversal (By similarity). This interaction occurs only if the C-terminal lobe of calmodulin is occupied by calcium (By similarity). Interaction with F-actin/ACTN1 occurs only at the apical brush border domain of the proximal tubule cells (By similarity). Interacts with DAB2 (PubMed:11967127). In vitro, the C-terminal globular tail binds a C-terminal region of DAB2 (By similarity). Interacts with CFTR (PubMed:15247260). Interacts with OPTN (By similarity). Interacts with CABP5 (By similarity).

  • Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Myosin family.
Domain:
  • Divided into three regions: a N-terminal motor (head) domain, followed by a neck domain consisting of a calmodulin-binding linker domain and a single IQ motif, and a C-terminal tail region with a three-helix bundle region, a SAH domain and a unique globular domain required for interaction with other proteins such as cargo-binding.
  • The SAH (single alpha-helix) region is characterized by a high content of charged residues which are predicted to stabilize the alpha-helical structure by ionic bonds (PubMed:18511944). Its contribution to the mechanism confering the myosin movement on actin filaments is debated (PubMed:18511944).

MYO6_HUMAN
  • Deafness, autosomal dominant, 22 (DFNA22) [MIM:606346]: A form of non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information. DFNA22 is progressive and postlingual, with onset during childhood. By the age of approximately 50 years, affected individuals invariably have profound sensorineural deafness. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11468689}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Deafness, autosomal recessive, 37 (DFNB37) [MIM:607821]: A form of non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12687499}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Deafness, autosomal dominant 22, with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (DFNHCM) [MIM:606346]: An autosomal dominant sensorineural deafness associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15060111}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
