The expression of mRNAs for transforming growth factors (TGF-beta2, myostatin, activin-B, and follistatin), insulin-like growth factors (IGF-I and -II), and fibroblast growth factor (basic, bFGF) was investigated in satellite cells derived from chicken pectoralis major (PM) and biceps femoris (BF) muscles in the stages from initiation of proliferation to fusion. These growth factor gene cDNAs were synthesized by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). No myostatin, activin-B… CONTINUE READING
