The formation of skeletal muscle tissue is directly modulated by intricate expressing the distinct signalling molecules orchestrated by the myogenic regulatory factors, such as the myogenic determination factor MyoD, that activates the transcription of muscle-specific genes by binding to consensus DNA sites found in the regulatory sequences of these genes, differentiate and fuse the myoblasts in order to form the muscle fibres (Buckingham, 2006).
