|Description||MyoD is a member of a family of myogenic basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors that includes Myf-5, myogenin, and MRF4 (also known as herculin or Myf-6). Members of this family, expressed exclusively in skeletal muscle, play a key role in myogenesis by activating muscle-specific genes in response to extracellular growth factors. Transfection of MyoD and other family members into non-muscle cells has been shown to either convert these cells to myogenic cells or to transcriptionally activate a set of otherwise unexpressed muscle-specific genes. Members of this family have distinct roles in muscle development, for example, MyoD and Myf-5 act early during myeloid development, whereas myogenin acts at a later point during myoblast differentiation. The expression and activity of MyoD has been shown to involve the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascade. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. The epitope for MoAb 5.8A has been mapped to amino acids 180-189nof mouse MyoD.|
