FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a conventional non-muscle myosin; this protein should not be confused with the unconventional myosin-9a or 9b (MYO9A or MYO9B). The encoded protein is a myosin IIA heavy chain that contains an IQ domain and a myosin head-like domain which is involved in several important functions, including cytokinesis, cell motility and maintenance of cell shape. Defects in this gene have been associated with non-syndromic sensorineural deafness autosomal dominant type 17, Epstein syndrome, Alport syndrome with macrothrombocytopenia, Sebastian syndrome, Fechtner syndrome and macrothrombocytopenia with progressive sensorineural deafness.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mice display embryonic lethality. Heterozygous null mice display hearing loss with incomplete penetrance. Mice homozygous or heterozygous for one of several knock-in alleles exhibit macrothrombocytopenia, nephritis, cataracts and deafness. [provided by MGI curators]
