Myosin, heavy chain 2, skeletal muscle, adult

myosin heavy chain IIA, MYH2, MyHC-IIa, myosin-2, MHC-2a
Myosins are actin-based motor proteins that function in the generation of mechanical force in eukaryotic cells. Muscle myosins are heterohexamers composed of 2 myosin heavy chains and 2 pairs of nonidentical myosin light chains. This gene encodes a member of the class II or conventional myosin heavy chains, and functions in skeletal muscle contraction. This gene is found in a cluster of myosin heavy chain genes on chromosome 17. A mutation in this gene results in inclusion body myopathy-3. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009] (from NCBI)

Review
Manstein et al., Hannover, Germany. In Cell Mol Life Sci, 2013

GeneRIF
Akema et al., Kawasaki, Japan. In Acta Physiol (oxf), 2011
After physical training, the proportion of type IIb MyHC was lower in old animals than in adult animals. Endurance training produced a fast-to-slow shift within type II MyHC isoforms in both adult and old animals.
