MYH9

A gene on chromosome 22q13.1, which encodes a myosin IIA heavy chain that contains an IQ domain and a myosin head-like domain. It is
involved in cytokinesis, cell motility, maintaining cell shape and specialised functions, such as secretion and capping.

Molecular pathology
MYH9 mutations are linked to non-syndromic sensorineural deafness autosomal dominant type 17, Epstein syndrome, Alport syndrome with macrothrombocytopenia, Sebastian syndrome, Fechtner syndrome and macrothrombocytopenia with progressive sensorineural deafness.

The new five wireless FTNS operators are expected to begin their services within a range between four months and 16 months from the date of license issue, while the external facilities licensees will launch their services from one month to 15 months.
The standard form of Fisher's fundamental theorem of natural selection (FTNS) is given in terms of alleles or, in my usage, in terms of the individual predictors.
If we insist that [R[prime].sub.j] = [r.sub.[prime].sub.j] must hold for the FTNS to be true, then the scope of FTNS is limited to systems in which changes in predictor (allele) frequencies are fully described by the average excess in fitness, [a.sub.j].
For FTNS, this limitation applies both to the total change in fitness, and to the total change in frequency.
To show the narrower, total frequency FTNS, we need only prove [R[prime].sub.j] = [r[prime].sub.j].
I have discussed the FTNS and the algebra at length.
