Abstract

Abstract Met Activating Genetically Improved Chimeric Factor 1 (Magic-F1) is a human recombinant protein, derived from dimerization of the receptor-binding domain of hepatocyte growth factor. Previous experiments demonstrate that in transgenic mice, the skeletal muscle specific expression of Magic-F1 can induce a constitutive muscular hypertrophy, improving running performance and accelerating muscle regeneration after injury. In order to evaluate the therapeutic potential of Magic-F1, we tested its effect on multipotent and pluripotent stem cells. In murine mesoangioblasts (adult vessel-associated stem cells), the presence of Magic-F1 did not alter their osteogenic, adipogenic or smooth muscle differentiation ability. However, when analyzing their myogenic potential, mesoangioblasts expressing Magic-F1 differentiated spontaneously into myotubes. Finally, Magic-F1 inducible cassette was inserted into a murine embryonic stem cell line by homologous recombination. When embryonic stem cells were subjected to myogenic differentiation, the presence of Magic-F1 resulted in the upregulation of Pax3 and Pax7 that enhanced the myogenic commitment of transgenic pluripotent stem cells. Taken together our results candidate Magic-F1 as a potent myogenic stimulator, able to enhance muscular differentiation from both adult and pluripotent stem cells.
