Description

Myostatin is a TGF-Beta family member that acts as an inhibitor of skeletal muscle growth. Suppression of myostatin activity facilitates muscle formation, and may be useful in reducing and/or preventing adiposity and type-2 diabetes. The amino acid sequence of mature myostatin is extremely conserved across species, and is the same in Mouse, rat, chicken, turkey, porcine, and human. Myostatin is expressed as the C-terminal part of a precursor polypeptide, which also contains a short N-terminal signal sequence for secretion, and a propeptide of ≥ 243 amino acids.
