Harmonin b

Page updated 10/2/03

Harmonin b belongs to a small family (so far as is currently known) of cytoskeletally-associated proteins that works together with myosin VIIa in the hair cell.  Harmonin b is an actin-bundling protein and binds to cadherin 23 in the stereocilia (Boeda et al, 2002).
