Gene: Myh2 (myosin heavy chain 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Myh2
Name: myosin heavy chain 2
RGD ID: 620354
Description: Predicted to have ATP binding activity and actin filament binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including actin-mediated cell contraction; plasma membrane repair; and response to activity. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including A band; Golgi apparatus; and actomyosin contractile ring. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in inclusion body myositis and proximal myopathy and ophthalmoplegia. Orthologous to human MYH2 (myosin heavy chain 2); PARTICIPATES IN myocarditis pathway; INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; benzo[a]pyrene; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
