Myostatin (also known as growth differentiation factor 8, abbreviated GDF-8) is a myokine, a protein produced and released by myocytes that acts on muscle cells’ autocrine function to inhibit myogenesis: muscle cell growth and differentiation. In humans it is encoded by the MSTN gene. Myostatin is a secreted growth differentiation factor that is a member of the TGF beta protein family.
Animals either lacking myostatin or treated with substances that block the activity of myostatin have significantly more muscle mass. Furthermore, individuals who have mutations in both copies of the myostatin gene have significantly more muscle mass and are stronger than normal. Blocking the activity of myostatin may have therapeutic application in treating muscle wasting diseases such as muscular dystrophy.
1. Treat muscle atrophy, strengthen muscle toughness,Increase muscle number.
2. Treating malnutrition patients is an important index of the strength training athletes.
3. GDF-8 can effectively prevent the increased due to age brings the increase of adipose tissue, and reduce the occurrence of diabetes.
Doses of Myostatin propeptide have been tested mice and it has showed an optimal increase of muscle mass at a dose of 20 mg/kg. It can be used every 5 days during 25 five days.
