Myosin XVIIIA (MYO18A) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in Golgi processes, such as linking Golgi membranes to the cytoskeleton. The protein may also be important in the tensile force required for the budding of vesicles from the Golgi. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, and frameshift deletions and insertions are observed in cancers such as peritoneal cancer, pituitary cancer, and skin cancer.
