The formation of skeletal muscle: from somite to limb.
Paris, France. In J Anat, 2003
These include Pax3 with its target c-met, Lbx1 and Mox2 as well as the myogenic determination factors Myf5 and MyoD and factors required for differentiation such as Myogenin, Mrf4 and Mef2 isoforms.
Myogenic regulatory factors and the specification of muscle progenitors in vertebrate embryos.
York, United Kingdom. In Annu Rev Cell Dev Biol, 2001
Embryological and genetic studies of mouse, bird, zebrafish, and frog embryos are providing new insights into the regulatory functions of the myogenic regulatory factors, MyoD, Myf5, Myogenin, and MRF4, and the transcriptional and signaling mechanisms that control their expression during the specification and differentiation of muscle progenitors.
