MYH16

A gene on chromosome 7q22.1 that encodes a heavy chain of myosin and is thus involved in cytokinesis, cell shape and specialised functions—e.g., secretion and capping. Inactivation of the MYH6 gene product is though to have removed evolutionary constraint on encephalisation in early hominids.
