Altered gene expression of satellite cell, myoblast, and early myofiber markers in regenerating
muscle. Wild type (WT) and Galgt1-deficient (Galgt1
−/−) muscles were injected with cardiotoxin and gene expression measured at Day 1, 4, 7, 14, and 28, relative to control untreated muscle (Day 0). Gene expression was compared for Pax7, a satellite cell marker; MyoD, Myf5, and Myogenin (Myog), myoblast cell markers; Myh3 (embryonic myosin), a marker for early differentiating myofibers; and Dystrophin (Dmd), a marker for mature myofibers. Data represent averages of three to four experiments per condition, with two to three measures per point.
