MYO7A [ENSP00000386331]
 
myosin VIIA; Myosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Their highly divergent tails are presumed to bind to membranous compartments, which would be moved relative to actin filaments. In retina, myosin VIIa might play a role in trafficking of ribbon- synaptic vesicle complexes and renewal of the outer photoreceptors disks. In inner ear, it might maintain the rigidity of stereocilia during the dynamic movements of the bundle. Involved in hair-cell vesicle trafficking of aminoglycosides, which are known to induce [...]
CDH23 [ENSP00000381822]
 
cadherin-like 23; Cadherins are calcium dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells. Cadherin 23 is required for establishing and/or maintaining the proper organization of the stereocilia bundle of hair cells in the cochlea and the vestibule during late embryonic/early postnatal development (By similarity)
