Establishing myogenic identity during somitogenesis.

Abstract

Over the past year, interest has focused on identifying signalling molecules--including Wnts, Sonic hedgehog, BMP-4, and noggin--that divert somitic mesodermal cells into the muscle lineage, either by induction or derepression. New mouse mutants have also provided insights into somite formation and differentiation, as well as pointing to novel differences… (More)
