Gene: Myl2 (myosin light chain 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Myl2
Name: myosin light chain 2
Description: Predicted to have actin monomer binding activity and calcium ion binding activity. Involved in cardiac muscle contraction; cell growth involved in cardiac muscle cell development; and regulation of the force of heart contraction. Localizes to myofibril. Predicted to colocalize with actin cytoskeleton. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 10. Orthologous to human MYL2 (myosin light chain 2); PARTICIPATES IN E-cadherin signaling pathway; N-cadherin signaling pathway; dilated cardiomyopathy pathway; INTERACTS WITH (R)-adrenaline; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran.
Type: protein-coding
