MYH2

MYH2

A gene on chromosome 17p13.1 that encodes a heavy chain of myosin and is thus involved in cytokinesis, cell shape and specialised functions—e.g., secretion and capping.

Molecular pathology
MYH2 mutations are linked to inclusion body myopathy-3.

Thus, SREBF1 is a master regulator which controls gene expression within the SREBF1 to FASN region via targeting transcriptional repressors of MPRIP, TCAP, and other muscle-related genes (BECN1, CACNB1, MYH2, MYH3, and MYH13); one of these repressors BHLHB 2 maps near FASN [55].
Unfortunately, the known causative genes of myopathy with rimmed vacuoles, such as GNE , MYH2 , VCP , PABPN1 , TTN , TIA1 , and so on were excluded by the whole-exome sequencing.
