(redirected from MYF3)

MYOD1

A gene on chromosome 11p15.4 that regulates myogenesis by encoding MyoD1, a nuclear phosphoprotein with partial homology to the myc family of oncoproteins, which binds to the enhancer sequences of the muscle-specific creatine phosphokinase gene, inhibiting DNA synthesis and cell proliferation. MyoD1 belongs to the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor family and the myogenic factors subfamily. It regulates muscle cell differentiation by inducing cell cycle arrest, a prerequisite for myogenesis, and is involved in muscle regeneration.

As the putative promoter contained perfect target sequences for transcription factors known to be active in skeletal muscle such as MyoD, Myf3, PEA3, HOXD8, and SBF1 [24], we performed RT-PCR in skeletal muscle samples using primers targeting exon 1 and exon 7.
