Technical Data
MYH14, CT (Myosin-14, Myosin heavy chain 14, Myosin heavy chain, non-muscle IIc, Non-muscle myosin heavy chain IIc, NMHC II-C, KIAA2034, FP17425)
Nonmuscle myosin class II proteins belong to the superfamily of actin-based motor proteins. They form hexamer structures composed of two ~200kD heavy chains (NMHC II) and two pairs of 20kD and 17kD light chains (MLC20 and MLC17). Nonmuscle myosins are classified according to the heavy chain isoforms; light chains are conserved. Three different isoforms that share 64-80% aa sequence identity have been detected in mammals: NMHC II-A, NMHC II-B, and NMHC II-C. Although NMHC II molecules have now been found in muscle cells as well, the name "nonmuscle myosin" was already widespread and is in use today. NMHC II-C is most abundant in skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, and specific parts of brain (pons and corpus callosum) compared to other NMHC isoforms. Recently two isoforms of NMHC II-C were reported, differing by inclusion/exclusion of 8aa in their loop 1. Point mutations in NMHC II- C such as R726S affect the inner ear.
