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.
12105204 The myogenic basic helix-loop-helix family of transcription factors, MyoD, Myf5, myogenin, and MRF4, can each activate the muscle differentiation program.
