Gene Family: Myosins, class I (MYO1)

A subset of : Myosins

Myosins, class I: Myosin-I isoforms are the single-headed, membrane-associated members of the myosin superfamily found in most eukaryotic cells. They play essential roles in membrane dynamics, cytoskeletal structure, mechanical signal-transduction and endosome processing. [Source: De La Cruz & Ostap, 2004]
