This MyoD1 antibody is generated from mice immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 105-134 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human MyoD1.
This gene 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.
