PMID: 20944748 - Arii et al. (2010) showed that nonmuscle myosin heavy chain IIA (NMHC-IIA), a subunit of nonmuscle myosin IIA (NM-IIA), functions as a herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) entry receptor by interacting with glycoprotein B.

PMID: 27112594 - Gao et al (2016) report the identification of non-muscle myosin heavy chain 9 (MYH9) as an essential factor for PRRSV infection

Several other papers describing the role of MYH9 with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus invasion e.g. 31649651;29879459
