Uncovering the genetics of skeletal muscle growth and regeneration

To investigate the mechanism behind skeletal muscle growth and regeneration, researchers bombarded zebrafish with chemical mutagen and screened for larvae with defective skeletal muscle structure. Using genetic mapping, they found that zebrafish larvae with a mutation in DDX27 showed reduced muscle growth and impaired regeneration.
