IGF1 is a mediator of many biological effects; for example, it increases the absorption of glucose, stimulates myogenesis, inhibits apoptosis, participates in the activation of cell cycle genes, increases the synthesis of lipids, stimulates the production of progesterone in granular cells, and intervenes in the synthesis of DNA, protein, RNA, and in cell proliferation [17].
15) While all rhabdomyosarcomas will stain with these markers, this variant appears to demonstrate a higher degree of differentiation owing to the consistency of the expression of late myogenesis markers, specifically titin and troponin.
MyoD and myogenin play a key role during neonatal myogenesis and have a regulatory function in the processes of muscle plasticity, adaptation, and regeneration in adult muscle [31-33].
Myogenesis is associated with the development of the insulin-responsive glucose transport system and there are indications that arsenite may have similar effects on myogenic differentiation; however, this has not been studied to the same extent as its effects on adipocytes.
