The myostatin (MSTN) gene encodes a growth factor, sometimes referred to as growth differentiation factor 8 (GDF-8).
Like other TGF-[beta] superfamily members, activins and MSTN signal via a heteromeric complex of type II and type I receptors.

Estudos que demonstraram diminuicao da expressao de MSTN pelo treinamento resistido de alta intensidade (Roth e Walsh, 2004) e BIOV (Laurentino, 2010) constataram aumentos significativos de AST e forca muscular.
Known as MSTN, the gene regulates myostatin, a protein that controls muscle cell production.
Myostatin (MSTN) negatively regulates muscle growth in mammals, with some evidence in support of a similar role in fish.
For knockout of the chicken myostatin (MSTN) gene, the nickase target loci were designed in exon 1 of chicken MSTN gene (Figure 1A).
Also, the phosphorylation of Smad2/3 can transduce signals of MSTN, one of the most powerful inhibitors of muscle growth [33-35].
For example, the 5-bp indel within the 5' UTR of the MSTN gene altered the functional structure of the MSTN protein so that the growth traits in goats were affected (Zhang et al., 2012).
