myoferlin, MYOF, FER1L3
Mutations in dysferlin, a protein associated with the plasma membrane, can cause muscle weakness that affects both proximal and distal muscles. The protein encoded by this gene is a type II membrane protein that is structurally similar to dysferlin. It is a member of the ferlin family and associates with both plasma and nuclear membranes. The protein contains C2 domains that play a role in calcium-mediated membrane fusion events, suggesting that it may be involved in membrane regeneration and repair. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. Other possible variants have been detected, but their full-length nature has not been determined.

Papers on myoferlin
Myoferlin plays a key role in VEGFA secretion and impacts tumor-associated angiogenesis in human pancreas cancer.
Peulen et al., Liège, Belgium. In Int J Cancer, Mar 2016
Recent studies have identified myoferlin, a ferlin family member, in human pancreas adenocarcinoma where its expression was associated to a bad prognosis.
Expression of nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT) and downstream muscle-specific proteins in ground squirrel skeletal and heart muscle during hibernation.
Storey et al., Ottawa, Canada. In Mol Cell Biochem, Jan 2016
We propose that calcium signalling proteins [calcineurin (Cn), calmodulin (CaM), and calpain], the nuclear factor of activated T cell (NFAT) family of transcription factors, and the NFAT targets myoferlin and myomaker contribute significantly to adaptations taking place in skeletal and cardiac muscle during hibernation.
Ferlins show tissue-specific expression and segregate as plasma membrane/late endosomal or trans-Golgi/recycling ferlins.
Cooper et al., Sydney, Australia. In Traffic, Jan 2016
Dysferlin, myoferlin, and Fer1L6 are plasma membrane (PM) ferlins, whereas otoferlin and Fer1L5 localize predominantly to intracellular compartments.
