The myosin 5’s (V’s) to which it belongs are a class of actin-based motor proteins involved in cytoplasmic vesicle transport and anchorage, spindle-pole alignment and mRNA translocation.

Molecular pathology
MYO5A mutations are linked to Elejalde syndrome (neuroectodermal melanolysosomal disease) and Griscelli syndrome 3.
