Name: myosin light chain 2
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits actin monomer binding (ortholog); calcium ion binding (ortholog); INVOLVED IN cardiac muscle contraction; cell growth involved in cardiac muscle cell development; regulation of the force of heart contraction; PARTICIPATES IN E-cadherin signaling pathway; N-cadherin signaling pathway; dilated cardiomyopathy pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH cardiomyopathy (ortholog); Death (ortholog); dilated cardiomyopathy (ortholog); FOUND IN contractile fiber; myofibril; actin cytoskeleton (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH (R)-adrenaline; 5-azacytidine; 7H-xanthine
Type: protein-coding
