a transcription factor of the basic helix-loop-helix family and the myogenic factors subfamily. Involved in muscle differentiation. Induces fibroblasts to differentiate into myoblasts. It is involved in muscle cell differentiation, and is essential for repair of damaged tissue. It activates its own transcription which may stabilize commitment to myogenesis. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Transcription factor; RNA splicing; DNA binding protein
SS: The number of records in which this modification site was determined using site-specific methods. SS methods include amino acid sequencing, site-directed mutagenesis, modification site-specific antibodies, specific MS strategies, etc.
