• Official Full Name
  • myotilin
  • Background
  • This gene encodes a cystoskeletal protein which plays a significant role in the stability of thin filaments during muscle contraction. This protein binds F-actin, crosslinks actin filaments, and prevents latrunculin A-induced filament disassembly. Mutations in this gene have been associated with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy and myofibrillar myopathies. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene have been described, but the full-length nature of some of these variants has not been determined.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

Protein Function

MYOT has several biochemical functions, for example, actin binding, alpha-actinin binding, protein binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by MYOT itself. We selected most functions MYOT had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with MYOT. You can find most of the proteins on our site.

Interacting Protein

MYOT has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with MYOT here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of MYOT.
