Gene Symbol MYOD1
Gene Full Name myogenic differentiation 1
Background MyoD encodes a nuclear protein that belongs to the basic helix-loop-helix family of transcription factors and the myogenic factors subfamily. It regulates muscle cell differentiation by inducing cell cycle arrest, a prerequisite for myogenic initiation. The protein is also involved in muscle regeneration. It activates its own transcription which may stabilize commitment to myogenesis.
Function Acts as a transcriptional activator that promotes transcription of muscle-specific target genes and plays a role in muscle differentiation. Together with MYF5 and MYOG, co-occupies muscle-specific gene promoter core region during myogenesis. Induces fibroblasts to differentiate into myoblasts. Interacts with and is inhibited by the twist protein. This interaction probably involves the basic domains of both proteins (By similarity). [UniProt]
Research Area Developmental Biology antibody; Gene Regulation antibody
Calculated MW 35 kDa
PTM Phosphorylated by CDK9. This phosphorylation promotes its function in muscle differentiation.
Acetylated by a complex containing EP300 and PCAF. The acetylation is essential to activate target genes. Conversely, its deacetylation by SIRT1 inhibits its function (By similarity).
Ubiquitinated on the N-terminus; which is required for proteasomal degradation.
Methylation at Lys-104 by EHMT2/G9a inhibits myogenic activity.
