Myosin, heavy chain 11, smooth muscle (MYH11) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions as a smooth muscle myosin - a major contractile protein that converts chemical energy to mechanical energy via ATP hydrolysis. Fusions, missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions and insertions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and skin cancer.

MYH11 is altered in 0.12% of all cancers.
