Disease relevance of Cmya1


High impact information on Cmya1


Biological context of Cmya1

  • Requirement of a novel gene, Xin, in cardiac morphogenesis [9].
  • Both cloned cDNAs have a single open reading frame, encoding proteins with 2,562 and 1,677 amino acids for cXin and mXin, respectively [9].
  • Furthermore, temporal and spatial expressions of Xin in relation to intercalated disc proteins and thin filament proteins suggest roles for Xin in the formation of cell-cell contacts and possibly in myofibrillogenesis [10].
  • Colocalization of Xin with both beta-catenin and N-cadherin is observed throughout embryogenesis and into adulthood [10].

Anatomical context of Cmya1


Associations of Cmya1 with chemical compounds

  • The overall domain structures of the predicted cXin and mXin proteins, including proline-rich regions, 16 amino acid repeats, DNA-binding domains, SH3-binding motifs and nuclear localization signals, are highly conserved [9].
  • In an attempt to induce in mice the cardiomyopathy associated with daunomycin treatment and to ameliorate this disorder by a protective pretreatment with ICRF-159 (razoxane), young male BDF 1 mice were injected with daunomycin, 6 mg/kg, in multiple doses [11].
