nomenclature changes

10.18.2019 Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 4607. From myosin binding protein C, cardiac to myosin binding protein C3

Summary from NCBI for human MYBPC3

MYBPC3 encodes the cardiac isoform of myosin-binding protein C. Myosin-binding protein C is a myosin-associated protein found in the cross-bridge-bearing zone (C region) of A bands in striated muscle. MYBPC3, the cardiac isoform, is expressed exclusively in heart muscle. Regulatory phosphorylation of the cardiac isoform in vivo by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) upon adrenergic stimulation may be linked to modulation of cardiac contraction. Mutations in MYBPC3 are one cause of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

note: mybpc3 in Xenopus expressed strongly in heart AND the head and trunk somites.
