psi-iconBackground and References
BACKGROUND:Myosins are actin-based motor proteins that function in the generation of mechanical force in eukaryotic cells (1). MYH3 (myosin, heavy chain, skeletal muscle, embryonic) plays a significant role in skeletal muscle development (2) and is also essential for the proper morphology and function of the developing heart (3). Mutations in this gene have been associated with Freeman-Sheldon syndrome and Sheldon-Hall syndrome (4).
