MYO3A(redirected from deafness, autosomal recessive 30)
MYO3AA gene on chromosome 10p11.1 that encodes an actin-based molecular motor with ATPase activity, which belongs to the unconventional myosin protein family. As with the other Class-III myosins, MYO3A is highly expressed in the cochlea and in retinal photoreceptors.
Loss of function mutations of MYO3A cause progressive non-syndromic hearing loss.
