MYH11

MYH11

A gene on chromosome 16p13.11 that encodes a heavy chain of myosin and is thus involved in cytokinesis, cell shape and specialised functions—e.g., secretion and capping.

While SOVA can be congenital or acquired (8, 9), this patient demonstrated no known aortopathy-associated genetic mutations in a specific limited aortopathy panel (ACTA2, CBS, COL3A1, COL5A1, COL5A2, FBN1, FBN2, MYH11, MYLK, PLOD1, SKI, SLC2A10, SMAD3, SMAD4, TGFB2, TGFBR1, TGFBR2; aortopathy panel performed by ARUP Laboratories, Salt Lake City, Utah) (10).

Both inv(16) and t(16;16) result in fusion of CBFB and MYH11, (54) either by inversion within a single chromosome 16 or by translocation between homologs.
Detection of AML1-ETO fusion transcript or CBF [beta]/ MYH11 also helped in diagnosis of AML subtypes.
