The Cas9-D10A nickase target sites were designed in exon 1 of chicken MSTN gene (Figure 1A).
The MSTN gene was discovered by McPherron and Lee (1997a) in a study of the transforming growth factor-b (TGF-b) superfamily.
One approach to inhibiting the MSTN effect is by blocking its signaling, which is initiated by interaction with the ActRIIB receptor.

In this study, we confirmed that ZFNs could recognize and cleave a target sequence in MSTN exon 3 in sheep primary cultured somatic cells and parthenogenetic embryos.
TALENs combined with ssODNs may be used for mimicking natural mutation of MSTN to produce novel "double muscle" livestock.
In terms of total small/medium shipments on a unit basis, Samsung SDI continued to lead, as shown below, and gained ground as Philips lost share due to the drop in MSTN mobile phone shipments.
In dogs, mutations in MSTN were found to be associated with athletic performance (Tozaki et al.
LEP and MSTN gene expression in the intermediate weight phase was significantly lower than in other phases (p<0.
Several GWAS have confirmed this finding that SNPs within or near the MSTN gene are strongly associated with racing performance (Binns et al.
For example, strong candidate genes, such MSTN, related to racing performance can be searched using single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chips at the genomic level.
It has been proved that the MSTN knockout mice have significantly larger body weight and more widespread increase in skeletal muscle mass than that of the wild-type (McPherron et al.
