MYO18B

A gene on chromosome 22q12.1 that encodes an actin- and ATP-binding motor protein, which is thought to be involved in intracellular trafficking when located in the cytoplasm, and regulation of muscle specific genes once in the nucleus.

Molecular pathology
MYO18B may play a role in controlling tumour development and progression; restoration of MYO18B expression in lung cancer cells suppresses anchorage-independent growth.
