Description: Enables several functions, including ATP binding activity; calcium-dependent ATPase activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including aging; cellular response to 3,3',5-triiodo-L-thyronine; and response to heat. Located in mitochondrion and myofibril. Part of muscle myosin complex. Biomarker of congestive heart failure; hypothyroidism; and myocardial infarction.
