  • Function

    Implicated in the level of global muscle contraction and cardiac function. Phosphorylates a specific serine in the N-terminus of a myosin light chain.
  • Tissue specificity

    Heart and skeletal muscles. Increased expression in the apical tissue compared to the interventricular septal tissue.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in MYLK2 are a cause of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (CMH) [MIM:192600]; also designated FHC or HCM. Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a hereditary heart disorder characterized by ventricular hypertrophy, which is usually asymmetric and often involves the interventricular septum. The symptoms include dyspnea, syncope, collapse, palpitations, and chest pain. They can be readily provoked by exercise. The disorder has inter- and intrafamilial variability ranging from benign to malignant forms with high risk of cardiac failure and sudden cardiac death.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Colocalizes with phosphorylated myosin light chain (RLCP) at filaments of the myofibrils.
  • Information by UniProt
