MYOG

(redirected from MYF4)

MYOG

A gene on chromosome 1q31-q41 that encodes myogenin, a muscle-specific transcription factor with a helix-loop-helix motif, which induces myogenesis; myogenin is required for the development of functional skeletal muscle.

Further on immunohistochemistry, tumour showed CK, Chromogranin A, NSE in epithelial component; CD99 focally positive in epithelial component; Vimentin diffusely positive in stromal and focally positive in epithelial component; Ki67 focally high in epithelial component; Myf4 was negative.

Association of the combined genotypes of Myf4 and MyoD with muscle fiber traits is shown in Table 3.
Muscle fiber formation takes place during embryonic development and is regulated by the MyoD gene family, which consists of four genes, MyoD1 (MYF3), myogenin (MYOG or MYF4), MYF5 and MYF6 (MRF4).
