Abstract

MEGF10 is known to function as a myogenic regulator of satellite cells in skeletal muscle. Mutations in MEGF10 gene cause a congenital myopathy called early onset myopathy, areflexia, respiratory distress and dysphagia (EMARDD). Despite its biological importance in muscle physiology, transcriptional regulation of the MEGF10 gene is unknown. Here, we characterized the 5′ flanking region of the human MEGF10 gene and showed that the role of myogenic basic helix-loop-helix factor (bHLH) myogenin in MEGF10 transcription in muscle cells. Myogenin was found to share a similar expression pattern with MEGF10 during muscle regeneration and to increase the promoter activity of the MEGF10 gene in C2C12 cells. Overexpression of myogenin led to upregulation of MEGF10 mRNA in C2C12 cells. Site-directed mutagenesis assays revealed that the conserved E-box element at the region -114/-108 serves as a myogenin-binding motif. Promoter enzyme immunoassays and chromatin immunoprecipitation analysis showed direct interaction between myogenin and the myogenin-binding motif in the MEGF10 promoter. Taken together, these results indicate that myogenin is a positive regulator in transcriptional regulation of MEGF10 in skeletal muscle.
