Function: Cellular myosin that appears to play a role in cytokinesis, cell shape, and specialized functions such as secretion and capping. During cell spreading, plays an important role in cytoskeleton reorganization, focal contacts formation (in the margins but not the central part of spreading cells), and lamellipodial retraction; this function is mechanically antagonized by MYH10.
Cellular location: Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton (By similarity). Cytoplasm, cell cortex (By similarity). Note=Colocalizes with actin filaments at lamellipodia margins and at the leading edge of migrating cells.
Tissue specificity: In the kidney, expressed in the glomeruli. Also expressed in leukocytes.
