Genetics of muscle determination and development.

Abstract

Skeletal muscles in vertebrates develop from somites as the result of patterning and cell type specification events. Here, we review the current knowledge of genes and signals implicated in these processes. We discuss in particular the role of the myogenic determination genes as deduced from targeted gene disruptions in mice and how their expression may be… (More)
