Gene RIF (7)

27066836 a novel, heterozygous p.Glu11Lys mutation in the atrial-specific myosin light chain gene MYL4, caused atrial fibrillation.
25807286 A recessive frameshift mutation in MYL4 causes early-onset atrial fibrillation.
19794400 Treatment of human brain endothelial cells with Tat markedly elevates GTP-RhoA levels and the potential downstream effectors, such as myosin phosphatase target subunit 1 and myosin light chain
16106982 results demonstrate that the expression of hALC-1 could have a beneficial effect on the overloaded hypertrophied heart
10373429 NMR showed involvement of N-terminus and lysines 3 and 4 in interaction with actin. Mutations of these lysines (K3A,K4R,K4A,K4D) resulted in altered actin binding and actin activated MgATPase. Mutation of Ala-1 to val had no effect on binding or kinetics.
9738905 The N-terminus of this protein is an actin binding site.
9000508 The (Ala-Pro) rich part of this protein acts as a "spacer arm" responsible for correct positioning of the N-terminal actin binding site.
