MYO5C May be involved in transferrin trafficking. Likely to power actin-based membrane trafficking in many physiologically crucial tissues. Belongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Myosin family. Expressed chiefly in non-neuronal tissues. Particularly abundant in epithelial and glandular tissues including pancreas, prostate, mammary, stomach, colon and lung. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
