Abstract

Skeletal muscle differentiation, or myogenesis, is a highly orchestrated process in which mononucleated muscle precursor cells, the myoblasts, undergo proliferation. Upon differentiation, they withdraw from the cell cycle, migrate, align with each other, and subsequently fuse to form terminally differentiated multinucleated myotubes. Myogenesis deregulation is related to important skeletal muscle alterations found in muscular dystrophies, cachexia and sarcopenia. Studies reported that the myogenesis is a well-characterized program of cellular differentiation that is highly sensitive to the extracellular matrix. Previous reports have identified the Protein Osteoglycin (OGN, also called mimecan) as one of secreted proteins that showed to be differentially expressed during muscle development. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are 21-23-nucleotide non-coding RNAs. It has become more evident that this class of small RNAs plays critical roles in the regulation of gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. However, the posttranscriptional regulation of osteoglycin by microRNAs during myogenesis is still completely unknown. Bioinformatics analysis showed that the microRNA mir-155 has complementary pairing with OGN transcript. In this work, we will test the hypothesis that OGN is silencing by miR-155 to regulate the processes of proliferation, migration and differentiation of C2C12 skeletal muscle cells during myogenesis in vitro.
