The target sequence has 90% sequence homology with mouse.
In muscle cell development and differentiation, MYOD1 is a key transcription factor regulating myogenesis. In skeletal muscle, MYOD1 works in tandem with PC4 to promote MEF2C transcription, and thus regeneration of muscle following injury. MYOD1 also influences normal muscle cell formation. Unsurprisingly, MYOD1 is then associated with several diseases of muscle groups, including infantile myofibroma, rhabdomyosarcoma, ulcerative colitis, and sclerosis. MYOD1 is also found in atypical cells of orbital pleomorphic liposarcoma in children.
