Myosin XVIIIB, also known as MYO18B, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: MYO18B myosin XVIIIB| url =| accessdate = ]

section_title =
summary_text = The protein encoded by this gene may regulate muscle-specific genes when in the nucleus and may influence intracellular trafficking when in the cytoplasm. The encoded protein functions as a homodimer and may interact with F actin. Mutations in this gene are associated with lung cancer.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: MYO18B myosin XVIIIB| url =| accessdate = ]
