Gene Family: Myosin light chains (MYL)

Myosin light chain: Myosin light chains are distinct and have their own properties, distinct from the heavy chains. They are not considered "myosins" but are components of the macromolecular complexes that make up the functional myosin enzymes. [Source: Wikipedia]
