The involvement of Ca2+ and PGE1 in myoblast fusion has been well documented. Extracellular Ca2+ is essential for myoblast adhesion, alignment, and fusion. There is an obligatory increase in Ca2+ influx immediately preceding fusion and the Ca2+ ionophore A23187 promotes precocious fusion. PGE1 receptors appear just prior to fusion, and an antagonist of PGE1 binding to cell surface receptors blocks fusion when added prior to Ca2+ influx. Finally, exogenous PGE1 induces precocious fusion. The… CONTINUE READING
