Unconventional myosin-VI - Q29122 (MYO6_PIG)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Number of PDB entries for Q29122: 12
Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Myosin 6 is a reverse-direction motor protein that moves towards the minus-end of actin filaments. Has slow rate of actin-activated ADP release due to weak ATP binding. Functions in a variety of intracellular processes such as vesicular membrane trafficking and cell migration. Required for the structural integrity of the Golgi apparatus via the p53-dependent pro-survival pathway. Appears to be involved in a very early step of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in polarized epithelial cells. May act as a regulator of F-actin dynamics. May play a role in transporting DAB2 from the plasma membrane to specific cellular targets. Required for structural integrity of inner ear hair cells. (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Homodimer. Binding to calmodulin through a unique insert, not found in other myosins, located in the neck region between the motor domain and the IQ domain appears to contribute to the directionality reversal. This interaction occurs only if the C-terminal lobe of calmodulin is occupied by calcium. Interaction with F-actin/ACTN1 occurs only at the apical brush border domain of the proximal tubule cells. Interacts with DAB2. In vitro, the C-terminal globular tail binds a C-terminal region of DAB2. Interacts with CFTR. Forms a complex with CFTR and DAB2 in the apical membrane of epithelial cells. Interacts with OPTN. (data source: UniProt  )
Divided into three regions: a N-terminal motor (head) domain, followed by a neck domain consisting of a calmodulin-binding linker domain and a single IQ motif, and a C-terminal tail region with a coiled-coil and a unique globular domain required for interaction with other proteins.
