Excessive muscling in double-muscled cattle arises from mutations in the myostatin gene, but the role of myostatin in normal muscle development is unclear. The aim of this study was to measure the temporal relationship of myostatin and myogenic regulatory factors during muscle development in normal (NM)- and double-muscled (DM) cattle to determine the… CONTINUE READING
