Expression of the mouse MyoD gene appears to represent a critical point in the commitment of cultured cells to muscle. In Xenopus, myogenic commitment begins during mesoderm induction which is initiated early in development by endogenous growth factors. To study MyoD gene expression during induction, a Xenopus MyoD gene and homologous cDNAs were selected from Xenopus libraries and analysed. Two different cDNAs have been sequenced. They code for proteins closely related to each other and to… CONTINUE READING
