Myosin 1G or Myo1G is a member of class I unconventional myosins. Its expression is highly restricted to hematopoietic tissues and cells. It localises exclusively to the plasma membrane and is dependent on both the motor domain and the tail domain.[1] Myo1G regulates cell elasticity possibly by interaction plasma membrane and cortical actin in Jurkat T-cells.
