Abstract

SHARMA, M., B. LANGLEY, J. BASS, and R. KAMBADUR. Myostatin in muscle growth and repair. Exerc. Sport Sci. Rev., Vol. 29, No. 4, pp 155–158, 2001. Myostatin, a member of the TGF beta superfamily, regulates skeletal muscle size by controlling embryonic myoblast proliferation. Recent results show that myostatin may also have a role in muscle regeneration and muscle wasting of adult animals. This review summarizes the recent developments in the regulation of myostatin gene expression and mechanism of its function.
