Establishment of skeletal muscle and neural cell types is controlled by families of myogenic and neurogenic basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) proteins, respectively. Myogenic bHLH proteins have been shown to activate skeletal muscle transcription in collaboration with members of the myocyte enhancer factor-2 (MEF2) family of MCM1-agamous-deficiens-serum response factor (MADS)-box transcription factors, which are expressed in differentiated myocytes and neurons. Here, we show that the neurogenic… CONTINUE READING
