Myosin VA

myosin V, myosin Va, GS1, GS-I, MYO5A
This gene is one of three myosin V heavy-chain genes, belonging to the myosin gene superfamily. Myosin V is a class of actin-based motor proteins involved in cytoplasmic vesicle transport and anchorage, spindle-pole alignment and mRNA translocation. The protein encoded by this gene is abundant in melanocytes and nerve cells. Mutations in this gene cause Griscelli syndrome type-1 (GS1), Griscelli syndrome type-3 (GS3) and neuroectodermal melanolysosomal disease, or Elejalde disease. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been reported, but the full-length nature of some variants has not been determined.

How Dynein Moves Along Microtubules.
Review
New
Vale et al., San Francisco, United States. In Trends Biochem Sci, Jan 2016

New
Carter et al., Paris, France. In J Cell Sci, Jan 2016
Myosin Va (MyoVa) is recruited to WPBs by a Rab27A-MyRIP complex and is thought to be the prime mediator of actin binding, however, direct MyRIP-actin interactions can also occur.

New
Vavylonis et al., Bethlehem, United States. In Cytoskeleton (hoboken), Oct 2015
Increasing the affinity of actin filaments for the bud neck together with reduced myosin V pulling promotes the formation of a bundle of antiparallel filaments at the bud neck, which we suggest as a model for the assembly of actin filaments to the contractile ring.

Impact
Sivaramakrishnan et al., Ann Arbor, United States. In Nat Nanotechnol, Aug 2015
Using both dimeric myosin V- and myosin VI-labelled nanotubes, we find that neither myosin density nor spacing has a significant effect on the gliding speed of actin filaments.

Weijer et al., Dresden, Germany. In Nat Cell Biol, Apr 2015
Use of class specific myosin inhibitors and gene-specific knockdown shows that apical contraction and intercalation are myosin II dependent and also reveal critical roles for myosin I and myosin V family members in the assembly of junctional myosin II cables.
