Gene: Myo6 (myosin VI) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Myo6
Name: myosin VI
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including ADP binding activity; actin filament binding activity; and calmodulin binding activity. Involved in response to drug. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm; microvillus; and ruffle membrane. Predicted to colocalize with the clathrin-coated endocytic vesicle. Used to study hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 22; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 37; ovarian cancer; and sensorineural hearing loss. Orthologous to human MYO6 (myosin VI); PARTICIPATES IN auditory mechanotransduction pathway; E-cadherin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
