MyoD belongs to a family of helix-loop-helix proteins that control myogenic differentiation. Transfection of various non-myogenic cell lines with MyoD transforms them into myogenic cells. In normal embryonic development MyoD is upregulated at the time when the hypaxial musculature begins to form, but its role in the function of adult muscle remains to be elucidated. In this study we examined the cellular locations of MyoD protein in normal and abnormal muscles to see whether the presence of… CONTINUE READING
