The role of c-myc oncogene expression in myogenic differentiation has been established by transfecting rat myoblasts of the L6 cell line with plasmid pMT-myc, in which the c-myc coding sequences were under the control of the metallothionein I promoter. We observed that the constitutive expression of the exogenous c-myc gene inhibits muscular differentiation. A diminution of the endogenous c-myc gene expression occurs within the first 24 h after the transfer of the cells to a differentiating… CONTINUE READING
