Summary
This gene encodes a myosin heavy chain. The encoded protein forms a hexamer with two heavy chains, two alkali light chains, and two regulatory light chain components. This complex functions in muscle contraction. This gene is located in a cluster of related genes on chromosome 11. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2013]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
