Mouse myoblasts can fuse and form a normal sarcomere in the absence of beta1 integrin expression.

Abstract

Antibody perturbation experiments suggested that migration, terminal differentiation and fusion of myoblasts are dependent on beta1 integrin expression. In addition, several studies have postulated that beta1 integrins have a role in the formation of sarcomeres. In the present report we have analysed skeletal myogenesis in wild-type/beta1-null chimeric mice… (More)
