Hughes, S.M. (2004) Muscle differentiation: a gene for slow muscle?. Current biology : CB. 14(4):156-157.
ABSTRACTSkeletal muscle comes in two fundamental flavours, slow and fast, which determine physiological performance. Zebrafish screens have provided a handle on the molecular mechanism driving slow muscle formation. The transcriptional repressor Blimp1 has now been shown to be required in embryonic slow muscle precursor cells.
