A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

During organogenesis, a continuum of founder stem cells produces temporally distinct progeny until development is complete. Similarly, in skeletal myogenesis, phenotypically and functionally distinct myoblasts and differentiated cells are generated during development. How this occurs in muscle and other tissues in vertebrates remains largely unclear. We showed previously that committed cells are required for maintaining muscle stem cells. Here we show that active Notch signalling specifies a subpopulation of myogenic cells with high Pax7 expression. By genetically modulating Notch activity, we demonstrate that activated Notch (NICD) blocks terminal differentiation in an Rbpj-dependent manner that is sufficient to sustain stem/progenitor cells throughout embryogenesis, despite the absence of committed progeny. Although arrested in lineage progression, NICD-expressing cells of embryonic origin progressively mature and adopt characteristics of foetal myogenic cells, including expression of the foetal myogenesis regulator Nfix. siRNA-mediated silencing of NICD promotes the temporally appropriate foetal myogenic fate in spite of expression of markers for multiple cell types. We uncover a differential effect of Notch, whereby high Notch activity is associated with stem/progenitor cell expansion in the mouse embryo, yet it promotes reversible cell cycle exit in the foetus and the appearance of an adult muscle stem cell state. We propose that active Notch signalling is sufficient to sustain an upstream population of muscle founder stem cells while suppressing differentiation. Significantly, Notch does not override other signals that promote temporal myogenic cell fates during ontology where spatiotemporal developmental cues produce distinct phenotypic classes of myoblasts.
