MYH7, also known as Myosin-7, is a 1,935 amino acid protein that is 223 kDa, found predominantly in myocytes and mediates plus-ended movement along microfilaments, it is involved in muscle contraction through cyclic interactions with actin-rich thin filaments, creating a contractile force. It is regulated by phosphorylation via myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) and by intracellular Ca2+ concentrations. Disease research is currently being studied with relation to this protein and myopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, wolff-parkinson-white syndrome, left ventricular noncompaction, left ventricular noncompaction 5, long qt syndrome, endocardial fibroelastosis, scapuloperoneal syndrome, laing distal myopathy, rhabdomyosarcoma oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy, ebstein anomaly, acute myocardial infarction, muscular dystrophy, myotonic dystrophy, and myocardial infarction. Its involvement has been observed with relation to YWHAQ, MYH13, MYL3, YWHAZ, MYH9, ACTB, NTHL1, and over 100 other proteins in cell adhesion integrin-mediated cell adhesion and migration, cell adhesion tight junctions, cytoskeleton remodeling regulation of actin cytoskeleton by Rho GTPases, immune response CCR3 signaling in eosinophils, development MAG-dependent inhibition of neurite outgrowth, RhoA pathway, factors promoting cardiogenesis in vertebrates, antioxidant action of vitamin-C, transendothelial migration of leukocytes, actin nucleation by ARP-WASP complex, cardiac muscle contraction, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), dilated cardiomyopathy, and viral myocarditis pathways.
