24595098 Pitx2c expression is reactivated, while expression of Myf5 is downregulated in human systolic heart failure as determined by qRT-PCR and Western blot analyses.
21810080 results are the first demonstration of a myogenic conversion of human mesenchymal and endothelial cells by Myf5
19829708 DUX4c induces the MYF5 protein and myoblast proliferation, and has a role in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy
19453261 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19192046 A novel homozygous polymorphism that prevented the binding of MYF-5 to FOXE1 promoter and affected the FOXE1 expression was found in 45% nonsyndromic cleft palate.
16614355 Myogenin and myogenic differentiation factor D (MyoD) mRNAs increased (P < 0.05) in young and old, whereas myogenic factor (myf)-5 mRNA increased in young only (P < 0.05). Myf-6 protein increased (P < 0.05) in both young and old.
12204280 Mrf4 expression precedes or is contemporaneous with that of Myf5, suggesting that this transcription factor plays a hitherto unsuspected role in myogenesis
12105204 The myogenic basic helix-loop-helix family of transcription factors, MyoD, Myf5, myogenin, and MRF4, can each activate the muscle differentiation program.
