Official Full Name
myosin VA (heavy chain 12, myoxin)
This gene is one of three myosin V heavy-chain genes, belonging to the myosin gene superfamily. Myosin V is a class of;actin-based motor proteins involved in cytoplasmic vesicle transport and anchorage, spindle-pole alignment and mRNA;translocation. The protein encoded by this gene is abundant in melanocytes and nerve cells. Mutations in this gene;cause Griscelli syndrome type-1 (GS1), Griscelli syndrome type-3 (GS3) and neuroectodermal melanolysosomal disease, or;Elejalde disease. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been reported,;but the full-length nature of some variants has not been determined.
