MYL4 gene

myosin light chain 4

From NCBI Gene:

Myosin is a hexameric ATPase cellular motor protein. It is composed of two myosin heavy chains, two nonphosphorylatable myosin alkali light chains, and two phosphorylatable myosin regulatory light chains. This gene encodes a myosin alkali light chain that is found in embryonic muscle and adult atria. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.

From UniProt:

Regulatory light chain of myosin. Does not bind calcium.

  • ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, FAMILIAL, 18

From UniProt:

Atrial fibrillation, familial, 18 (ATFB18): A familial form of atrial fibrillation, a common sustained cardiac rhythm disturbance. Atrial fibrillation is characterized by disorganized atrial electrical activity and ineffective atrial contraction promoting blood stasis in the atria and reduces ventricular filling. It can result in palpitations, syncope, thromboembolic stroke, and congestive heart failure. [MIM:617280]
