Summaries for MYOD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MYOD1 Gene

  • 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. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MYOD1 Gene

MYOD1 (Myogenic Differentiation 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MYOD1 include ectomesenchymoma and malignant fibrous histiocytoma of bone. Among its related pathways are L1CAM interactions and Notch-mediated HES/HEY network. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is MYF6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MYOD1 Gene

  • Acts as a transcriptional activator that promotes transcription of muscle-specific target genes and plays a role in muscle differentiation. Together with MYF5 and MYOG, co-occupies muscle-specific gene promoter core region during myogenesis. Induces fibroblasts to differentiate into myoblasts. Interacts with and is inhibited by the twist protein. This interaction probably involves the basic domains of both proteins (By similarity).

Post-translational modifications for MYOD1 Gene

  • Acetylated by a complex containing EP300 and PCAF. The acetylation is essential to activate target genes. Conversely, its deacetylation by SIRT1 inhibits its function (By similarity).
  • Methylation at Lys-104 by EHMT2/G9a inhibits myogenic activity.
  • Phosphorylated by CDK9. This phosphorylation promotes its function in muscle differentiation.
  • Ubiquitinated on the N-terminus; which is required for proteasomal degradation.
