Identification of a second follistatin gene in grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idellus) and its regulatory function in myogenesis during embryogenesis.

Abstract

Follistatin can antagonize the function of myostatin as a competitive binding protein and promote muscle growth in vivo. Here, we report the isolation and characterization of a second follistatin gene fst2 in grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idellus). The grass carp fst2 cDNA was 1,376 bp in length, with an open reading frame (ORF) encoding 350 amino acid… (More)
