Summaries for MYPN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYPN Gene

  • Striated muscle in vertebrates comprises large proteins which must be organized properly to contract efficiently. Z-lines in striated muscle are a sign of this organization, representing the ends of actin thin filaments, titin, nebulin or nebulette and accessory proteins required for structure and function. This gene encodes a protein which interacts with nebulin in skeletal muscle or nebulette in cardiac muscle and alpha-actinin. In addition, this gene product can interact with a protein with the I-band indicating it has a regulatory as well as structural function. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

  • Nemaline myopathy 11 (NEM11) [MIM:617336]: An autosomal recessive form of nemaline myopathy. Nemaline myopathies are muscular disorders characterized by muscle weakness of varying severity and onset, and abnormal thread-like or rod-shaped structures in muscle fibers on histologic examination. NEM11 is characterized by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy, mainly affecting the lower limbs and neck. Some patients may have mild cardiac or respiratory involvement, but they do not have respiratory failure. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:28017374}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Cardiomyopathy, dilated 1KK (CMD1KK) [MIM:615248]: A disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18006477, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22286171, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22892539}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Cardiomyopathy, familial hypertrophic 22 (CMH22) [MIM:615248]: A hereditary heart disorder characterized by ventricular hypertrophy, which is usually asymmetric and often involves the interventricular septum. The symptoms include dyspnea, syncope, collapse, palpitations, and chest pain. They can be readily provoked by exercise. The disorder has inter- and intrafamilial variability ranging from benign to malignant forms with high risk of cardiac failure and sudden cardiac death. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22286171}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Cardiomyopathy, familial restrictive 4 (RCM4) [MIM:615248]: A heart disorder characterized by impaired filling of the ventricles with reduced diastolic volume, in the presence of normal or near normal wall thickness and systolic function. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22286171}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
