Abstract

Myosins are molecular motors that move along filamentous actin. Seven classes of myosin are expressed in vertebrates: conventional myosin, or myosin-II, as well as the 6 unconventional myosin classes-I, -V, -VI, -VII, -IX, and -X. We have mapped in mouse 22 probes encompassing all known unconventional myosins and, as a result, have identified 16 potential unconventional myosin genes. These genes include 7 myosins-I, 2 myosins-V, 1 myosin-VI, 3 myosins-VII, 2 myosins-IX, and 1 myosin-X. The map location of 5 of these genes was identified in human chromosomes by fluorescence in situ hybridization.
