This gene is composed of 38 coding exons. The protein produced is the beta (beta refers to slow) heavy chain and makes up one of two heavy chain cardiac myosin subunits. Mutations in this gene are associated with increased risk of sudden death, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and increased left ventricular wall thickness.
