Role of skeletal muscle in mandible development.
Halifax, Canada. In Histol Histopathol, Jun 2014
Previous analysis of Myf5-/-:MyoD-/- mouse fetuses lacking skeletal muscle demonstrated the importance of muscle contraction and static loading in mouse skeletogenesis.
Finding MyoD with a little help from my friends.
Boston, United States. In Nat Cell Biol, 2012
Findings indicate that MyoD activates the expression of other muscle regulators such as MEF2 and myogenin, which are necessary for induction of the skeletal muscle differentiation program.
Cell fate plug and play: direct reprogramming and induced pluripotency.
New York City, United States. In Cell, 2011
Building on the discovery that MyoD expression reprograms fibroblasts into muscle, three papers (Vierbuchen et al., 2010; Ieda et al., 2010; Szabo et al., 2010) recently reported the reprogramming of fibroblasts into neurons, cardiomyocytes, and blood cell progenitors without first passing the cells through a pluripotent state.
