|Function||Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Their highly divergent tails bind to membranous compartments, which are then moved relative to actin filaments. In the retina, plays an important role in the renewal of the outer photoreceptor disks. Plays an important role in the distribution and migration of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) melanosomes and phagosomes, and in the regulation of opsin transport in retinal photoreceptors. In the inner ear, plays an important role in differentiation, morphogenesis and organization of cochlear hair cell bundles. Involved in hair-cell vesicle trafficking of aminoglycosides, which are known to induce ototoxicity (By similarity). Motor protein that is a part of the functional network formed by USH1C, USH1G, CDH23 and MYO7A that mediates mechanotransduction in cochlear hair cells. Required for normal hearing.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cell cortex. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=In the photoreceptor cells, mainly localized in the inner and base of outer segments as well as in the synaptic ending region. Colocalizes with a subset of melanosomes in retinal pigment epithelium cells. Detected at the tip of cochlear hair cell stereocilia. The complex formed by MYO7A, USH1C and USH1G colocalizes with F-actin|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the pigment epithelium and the photoreceptor cells of the retina. Also found in kidney, liver, testis, cochlea, lymphocytes. Not expressed in brain|
