Since myostatin was first identified as a negative regulator of muscle growth, many studies have demonstrated that decreasing the level of myostatin or inhibiting its function can drastically increase muscle mass.
Based on this evidence, the purpose of the present study was to quantify the levels of MyoD and myostatin transcripts in chicken embryos exposed to low and high incubation temperatures for distinct timing exposure using real time PCR assays.
"With genotyping, we can move that myostatin gene, over a period of time, into less heavily muscled breeds," says Lewis.
Whippet breeders have, unintentionally, selected for their dogs to carry the mutated myostatin gene.
Scholar Rock is on track to report preliminary PK/PD data for a subset of patients in the Phase 2 TOPAZ trial by the end of 2019, which will provide initial observations on target engagement of latent myostatin in patients with Type 2 and Type 3 SMA.
In a study conducted by Heinemeier and collaborators (2007), investigations were made regarding the effectiveness of various types of resistance exercise on the expression of Myostatin and IGF-1 isoforms in the muscles and tendons of mice.
Scientists have previously discovered different versions of the myostatin gene (polymorphisms) which is a pronounced inhibitor of skeletal muscle growth.
