MYH3(redirected from myosin-3)
MYH3A 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. The MYH3 gene product has an IQ domain and a myosin head-like domain.
MYH3 mutations are associated with two congenital contracture (arthrogryposis) syndromes: Freeman-Sheldon syndrome and Sheldon-Hall syndrome.
