MYOC

A gene on chromosome 1q23-q24 that encodes myocilin, a protein thought to play a role in cytoskeletal function, which is highly expressed in ocular tissues including the trabecular meshwork, which regulates intraocular pressure.

Molecular pathology
MYOC mutations cause hereditary juvenile-onset open-angle glaucoma.
