FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Myogenin is a muscle-specific transcription factor that can induce myogenesis in a variety of cell types in tissue culture. It is a member of a large family of proteins related by sequence homology, the helix-loop-helix (HLH) proteins. It is essential for the development of functional skeletal muscle.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for targeted null mutations exhibit a severe reduction in muscle mass associated with delayed primary myogenesis and very little secondary myofiber formation, defects of the thoracic skeleton, and perinatal death. [provided by MGI curators]
