Myogenic determination factor 5 (IPR022032)

Short name: Myf5

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



This domain is found in eukaryotes, is approximately 70 amino acids in length, and contains a conserved CSD sequence motif. It is found in association with PF00010, PF01586. This domain is found in Myogenic factor 5 (Myf5) and Myoblast determination protein 1 (MyoD1). Myf5 is responsible for directing cells to the skeletal myocyte lineage during development [PMID: 17395511]. Myf5 is likely to act in a similar way to the other MRF4 proteins such as MyoD which perform the same function [PMID: 21798092].
