The Pax3 gene has been proven to play a crucial role in determining myogenic progenitor cell fate during embryonic myogenesis; however, the molecular role of Pax3 in myoblast development during later stages of myogenesis is unknown. We hypothesized that Pax3 would function in myoblast proliferation and differentiation; therefore, we employed three short(More)
Myogenic enhancer transcription factor 2c (MEF2c), one of the members of the MEF2 family of transcription factors, plays an important role in mammalian muscle development. However, the role of MEF2c in avian muscle development still remains unclear. To understand the function of MEF2c in avian muscle development, we first cloned the duck MEF2c coding domain(More)
