    Secreted hormones

    • Hormone: IL-4

      • IL-4 is expressed by a subset of muscle cells in fusing muscle cultures and requires the IL-4alpha receptor subunit on myoblasts to promote fusion and growth. [1]
    • Hormone: sFRP-5

    • Hormone: semaphorin 3B

    • Hormone: GDF-8

      • GDF-8 is expressed in many different muscles throughout the body. [2]


    • Receptor: activin receptor type I

    • Receptor: PPAR-gamma1

    • Receptor: frizzled 3

    • Receptor: Lysophosphatidic acid receptor 1

    • Receptor: relaxin receptor 2
